Simply hang the spring, place in one ear of corn, and watch the squirrels come running. The powder coating lends a durable and weather resistant finish to the feeder. This feeder will also accept fruit, suet, and nesting materials. The hanger is included. It's a fun way to watch birds and squirrels feed, and it is also easy to use. Please request your color or one will be selected for you. Colors are red, yellow, or green.
