How To Make a Squirrel-Proof Bird Feeder Setup

Do you have trouble with squirrels getting to your bird feeders and you want to find a way for birds and squirrels to eat peacefully? I'm sharing a setup my grandfather designed to hang my bird feeders.

Keith,

Great setup! Thumbs up

How close is your post to the wooden fence and the tree that are next to it? They look close enough that squirrels wouldn't have any problems jumping to your setup.

It looks close but it's about 12 feet away from them. Squirrels have tried and never get on they land on the ground.
