This feeder is THE solution
This feeder is THE solution - I've owned it 5+ years - and there is no other way to keep out squirrels, raccoon, or deer. It holds up to the elements, even when I've over-weighted it with too many heavy feeders and the surprising wicked winter winds have pushed and shoved, it stays up right; to clarify: 40-60 mph top-of-a-mountain winds. The pole has bent ever so slightly over the years of abuse, winter winds and my bad choice of summer storage on an angle in the shed, but no matter, each year it works like a champ. And the sky-hook pole is an ingenious design - hanging feeders is so easy! Additionally, I've used the hook to hang holiday lights in the trees without damaging buds but also for putting up extra suet, hanging flower baskets, or small feeders. The whole set up is a sharp classic design too - any combo of feeders or styles work well - I also hang extra suet on the middle post. Again, this is THE best solution for attracting all kinds of birds since its so easy to add various feeder types for song birds, platform landers, or perching birds so it maintains harmony.
