I feed a variety of birds, jaybirds, finches, cardinals, doves, hummingbirds and some birds I have no idea what they are. I also feed the squirrels. How do I keep the squirrels out of the bird feeders?

Squirrels are going to be attracted by the bird seed no matter what you do. Hanging the feeders at a distance from your house or trees so they can't jump onto the feeder may be the easiest solution, possibly using the squirrel proof metal feeders with a weight sensitive perch which closes the feeder when a squirrel arrives. Hope this helps!
