Introduction: Save the Bird Feeder!!!

The better way to stop squirrel's attacks to our bird feeder is the Squirrel Baffler.

The problem is... EXPENSIVE!!!!!... a lot. Do you understand the reason? Yes? Let me know.
I find a CHEAP, CHEAP solution for that. Clear Plastic Plant Saucer!!!!

Lowe's results for Clear Plastic Plant Saucer

Step 1: Materials

For this project I used

  • A commercial bird feeder (You can do it on any model)
  • Clear Plastic... 12" size I bought for $0.98 at Walmart.
  • 1 screw
  • 1 butterfly nut
  • some silicone for seal the hole.

Step 2: Holes

Make a hole in the middle the cap

And three holes (in this case I need that) in the Clear Plastic...

Step 3: Screw It and Almost Done

Put the screw into the hole and put some silicone to seal head

Step 4: Done

Assemble and ready.

Poor squirrels, I am soory, free meal is finished!!

Ah, It's too a Weather dome!!!

The picture caught me. I was thinking, why would someone put a grain silo so close to a river. Anyway, it looks like a nice design but remember squirrels are pretty smart...good luck :).

Fantastic idea. I did almost the exact same thing with mine as well. I used a 16" stainless steel salad bowl for mine, though. Because, I was worried that a plastic bowl would not hold up that well. outside.
