Cedar Bird Feeder

Seeding for Two? This project solves the two biggest problems with bird feeders. It has a unique lid that makes it a breeze to fill, and a guard that helps keep squirrels out of the food.

When I’m not in the shop or working on the house, one of the things I like to do is relax and watch the birds. What I don’t enjoy is watching the squirrels steal all the birds’ food.And these fuzzy little thieves figure out some ingenious ways to pilfer the food from most feeders. So when I designed this bird feeder, I came up with a simple but effective squirrel-proofing system.
