Genius at Work!

I am so excited. Necessity is the mother of invention, as they say, and my invention is a success!

The squirrels have been foiled and the birds have a feeder tray along with the usual hanging feeder(s), all “perched” on one post. Here it is for your¬†amazement at Queen Bee’s most clever work to date:



Birdfeeder with Squirrels 11-30-2015 12-49-56 PM 480x640

My gardener, Algoberto, and I collaborated on the design. We got the parts and he welded them together. The pole is stuck in the base of an outdoor umbrella, but it could be hammered into the ground because the top comes off. As you can see, I finally found a site well away from trees and bushes, so there’s still always that problem…

EUREKA! I think Algoberto and I are ready for Costco! What do you all think of our idea?! ##

    Go for Costco V. Walmart!!
    Yes, I have a “squirrel Hood?” But sometimes they get bored and leap from the pine tree onto the finch sock—only to find out that they don’t really like finch food!!

    I think it it brilliant you captured 3 different species of birds in your photo!! Well done. I am left wondering, why are we nicer to birds than squirrels anyway?
