Winter is a great time to observe the squirrels in your yard by offering them food to eat. When most of the birds have gone south for the winter, the squirrels are still around looking for your yard for food and can be enjoyable to watch. Watching the squirrels eat food is entertaining when you have a variety of squirrel and wildlife feeders set up in your yard.
A great squirrel feeder that is entertaining to watch the squirrels feed from is the Cobs-A-Twirl Squirrel Feeder. This fun feeder holds four corn cobs and makes the squirrels work to get to the corn for a bite. The squirrels have fun trying to maneuver around the feeder to get to the corn. Hang this feeder on a tree branch near your home for a great show any time during the winter.
Another fun feeder for the squirrels to eat from is the Squirrel Corn Spinner by Aubudon Woodlink. This feeder is made of wood and other durable materials and is made to last for years. It holds three ears of corn and turns in a circle when the squirrels put their weight on the feeder. This feeder may be hung in a tree branch or on a post near your home for a close-up view of the squirrels.
A simple squirrel feeder that is fun to watch the squirrels eat corn from and very economical is the Spring-N-Cob Squirrel Feeder by Gardner Equipment. Add an ear of corn to this feeder and watch the squirrel bounce up and down trying to eat the corn. The spring coil is very sturdy, weather resistant, and will last for a long time. Hang up a few of these squirrels feeders around your yard to feed several squirrels at one time.
Hanging up a squirrel feeder in the winter is great for feeding the squirrels, but will also provide you some entertainment when the birds are gone. Check out Rachel’s Robin for a great selection of squirrel feeder and squirrel food.
