This seems like a pretty smart idea for dealing with squirrels. First I'd swap the the rope for cable so that it can last longer and I wouldn't have to replace it constantly. I love how it hangs right in front of the window so you can see the birds feeding from it.

What a unique idea!

Are you tired of the squirrels eating all the bird food in feeders but love to feed your birds then check this way to hang your feeders by making pulleys to put up and down in the evesment of your house. You can even watch the birds through the window. Great idea if you have the place to put them and this tutorial has a good way explaining how to do it. Anyone have any other great ways to keep the squirrels off.
