Since we moved to the Mid-West I have been really enjoying how many animals we have here. I am amazed at the variety and volume of birds all around us. We love having a bird feeder in our yard to attract all these interesting species. I just got a new feeder and I wanted to show to you all.
I got the new Squirrel Slammer Wild Bird Feeder from Perky-Pet. It is quite an innovative design. The Perky-Pet Squirrel Slammer Wild Bird Feeder features a distinctive weight activated slammer that closes its ports instantly under a squirrel’s weight. The slammer also has an adjustable weight setting so you can decide which birds to keep out.
Our neighborhood is new so there aren’t really too many trees, which means not too many squirrels are hanging around our feeder. But I have lots of family who have had big issues with squirrels being pesky with their bird feeders. Squirrels are very creative and agile, making it hard to keep them out of the feeders. I love that these new innovations are available. The squirrels will be pretty mad they can’t chow down!
One thing that has really amazed me is just how many birds are still around during the winter here. I assumed most would leave when the cold weather arrived. There is snow on the ground and crazy wind chills, yet there are still birds all around. I’m sure many did leave, but there are still many species hanging around. I’m excited to see how many are here in the spring! we will be all set up with our feeder and lots of food so we can check out how many types there are hanging around here.
Winter, Spring, Summer, and Fall – they all are a great time to have a bird feeder in your yard. Having that action just outside your window is so enjoyable. If you don’t yet have a bird feeder I recommend you grab one. Perky-Pet is the leading supplier of Wild Bird Feeders and Accessories.

I received the feeder shown free of charge to facilitate this post. All opinions are my own.
