Default Bird Feeder Update

I posted on another thread about a squirrel proof bird feeder I designed and built (Post). Well I knew I shouldn't have bragged, a few days later, a damn squirrel defeated it by dropping 15' or more from a branch (Video). I'm going to try changing to a longer PVC section to completely cover the perforated 1" square tubing. It took nearly 10 years for one to figure it out, not for want of trying...

Default Ten years?

I suspect the design does not need to be altered. Cut the limb back to where it was ten years ago. I would bet that in ten years time, the branch, distance and angle has changed considerably.

Phil,

I doubt that the limb has grown much as this is a large mature pine and the limb is rather large. Given its height (25-30 feet), I would have to have someone do the cutting. I think we just had a rather ballsy squirrel that didn't mind falling 15 or more to an rather small landing area. It might be pointless, as I shot at the culprit with my pellet rifle the last time it was up there. shot four times as it ran away, don't know if I hit it, but it has not been back since scurrying off. I am still going through designing an upgrade, but might not install it until we see if there is going to be a problem.
