The squirrels are eating more seed than the birds. What can I do to keep them away?

There are a few things you can do. Discontinue feeding for a few weeks and see if that helps. Another option is to get a pole-mounted feeder. It should be about five feet off the ground and at least ten feet away from any structure or tree that a squirrel could jump from onto the feeder. Another option is to feed both the squirrels and the birds. Squirrel feeders that are stocked with their favorite grub will leave them less likely to mess with your birds and their pricier seed. Make sure to install the two feeders far away from one another.
