Squirrel Proof Yes, Bear Proof No
I love this squirrel proof bird feeder that once belonged to my Dad. We had many laughs watching the squirrels at his place dine at this feeder, despite the fact that it was designed to be squirrel proof! I was enjoying the beautiful birds dining at the feeder on my field until the other day. While sitting on the porch in the early morning with my cup of coffee, I noticed it was gone and the pole holding the feeder was bent towards the ground. After wandering around, I found the feeder over the bank, in pieces, empty. The bird feeder is not bear proof. Only a bear could have done this. Should have listened to the outdoor columnist and removed the feeder when he advised doing so a few weeks ago!
