Traditional shepherd’s hooks are a perfect choice for hanging bird feeders and even bird baths. Double arm shepherd’s hooks are better, as they’ll hold another item to attract more birds. A quad hook is the best!
A bird feeder pole with four arms (or attachments) will really let you customize the feeding area. Today on one pole, I noticed four species all perching together! A Downy Woodpecker, an Eastern Bluebird, One Purple Finch and one Titmouse. How cool that all these species can just chill together in the same place!
The Bluebirds are constantly standing watch for insects on the back bird feeder pole, which adjacent to the bluebird feeder itself. On this pole hangs a copper bath and stainless steel finch feeder, but the Bluebirds always hunt insects from the two top arms.
The other great thing about these poles is that its relatively easy to add a squirrel baffle. If the little pesky acrobats are getting into feeders, simply add a baffle to stop them in their tracks!
