Since the dawn of feeding wild birds, squirrels have been a big part of the picture! Love or hate them, there’s actually an easy solutions to both sides of the coin. Although a nightmare for some, many folks adore the critters and their antics and actually feed them, squirrels even have their own dedicated national holiday!
Squirrel feeders provide hours of entertainment for hosts and users, and they help deter said users from raiding bird feeders. For a really special treat, you can smear some peanut butter on the corn. The extra fat and protein keeps critters warm overnight.
To stump someone and keep them guessing… buy a small jar of peanut butter and place it in their stocking. When they find it, you can bet their thoughts will be something along the lines of “what the heck?” 🙂
Several fun squirrel feeders are in stock for immediate shipping; ones that spin, the classic table & chair, the popular bungee cord, and this groovy combo feeder for corn cobs and peanuts. The latter being for gourmets only! It’s a fun & functional gift that gives back, it gets used everyday and provides some real entertainment.

Stumped for a really cool gift for a bird watcher or gardening type? A gift that might allow some artistic license yet still be totally functional? Birdhouse Kits… because some of them have really come a long way! They present a puzzle for assembly (no nails, glue, or screws), the wooden ones like Box for Birds can be painted or stained, and birds really do use them. Not just for nesting in spring but also for cozy roosts on cold winter nights. It’s even a fab way to get someone hooked on birds!
Whether original or mod style (deemed the Right, after Frank Lloyd) these kits are hand made in GA by a local company in Athens. Did you say Bull Dawgs?
Birdhouse kits are ideal for kids and adults, there’s no age limit or requirement for enjoying feathered friends! Real estate’s tough out there, so providing housing and shelter does make a difference for local beaked buddies!

Recently we noticed decreased activity at our finch feeders, so much so… it seems the goldfinches have disappeared? Being resident birds in the southeast, there have been periods of up & down activity, but no birds are to be found at present. The nyjer seed is fresh, cleaner emptied and scrubbed two weeks ago, and feeders with finch mix are good too.
Although other birds partake in finch mixes; cardinals & sparrows (the good ones) – it is from past experience we know the usual suspects will again return! Because of this, finch feeders are a swell idea for any bird lover or gardening addict.
The tiny black seed won’t germinate, and goldfinches are one the sweetest songbirds to grace the yard. The Rainbow Finch Feeder shown here is an awesomely inexpensive and impressive feeder! It boasts 18 perches which offer a delightful view when occupied at once. It comes in two sizes (regular and super) to accommodate big crowds, and it’s available for immediate shipping via USPS Priority Mail, usually 3 days to anywhere in the country.
