Comments about Product: Of course it's not squirrel proof- not much is-but if you put it in the right place you can make it difficult for them! I have watched the squirrels, chipmunks, mice and other rodents co-exist happily with the birds and everyone manages to get a meal. I even see ducks enjoying dropped seed.
This feeder is beautifully made of recycled materials, so I feel good using it! It is very sturdy, and attractive, and has the tail-holder that the larger woodpeckers love. I liked it so much I came back and bought a second one. They are on a double plant holder 6'tall in the middle of the yard- away from trees. I have seen a hungry squirrel scale the metal pole, however it is difficult for those without a beak to get at the suet, especially with trying to hang on tight. The top is easy to open to fill and closes securely. It is a nice addition to my birding area, and was reasonable, and shipped very fast.
Comments about Product: I had one of these previously and it took several years before the raccons managed to take off with it. In fact the wire that kept the lid in place went, the rest of it was still in good shape.
I have been greatly disappointed in this one.
The wire cage on one side was gone in a day and the other side went three days later.
I managed to find a cheap wire suet holder and set it inside the frame. I used a copper wire to connect it to the wire hanger and the lid. So far that has worked.

The Olla: A Brief History
Olla (Spanish, pronounced “oh-ya”) jars have been around since ancient times. Made of unglazed ceramic, ollas traditionally have short, narrow necks with wider bodies, and are made in a variety of shapes. They have been used for thousands of years for cooking, storage, and plant irrigation.
When used to irrigate plants, an olla is buried neck-deep in the ground near a plant’s roots, with the opening of the olla extended above the soil so that it can be filled with water periodically. The porous walls of the unglazed pottery allow the water to seep through gradually, constantly and consistently hydrating the plants without overwatering them – and without wasting precious water to evaporation or runoff.
The use of ollas for irrigation was introduced to the American Southwest by Spanish conquistadors during Colonial times, becoming very common among Native American tribes and Hispanic settlers. Though the technique gave way to more modern methods of irrigation some time ago, its superior efficiency, coupled with its simplicity, has caused it to make a comeback. Though the technique has changed little since its introduction, today’s ollas are usually capped off, making them even more water-efficient.
Perfect for home gardens, Ollas are a super-easy, eco-friendly, less time-consuming way to water annuals, perennials, herbs, vegetables and plants of all kinds in dry, sandy soil, very hot or drought-prone areas, raised beds, and even pots, planters and hanging baskets. Fill the olla before you leave on a short vacation to enjoy worry-free watering – and a smaller water bill!
