Building the Perfect Squirrel-Proof Bird Feeder

May 28, 2020

Squirrels were stealing my bird seed so I solved the problem with mechanical engineering 🙂

Former NASA engineer – with seven years working on the Curiosity Rover under his belt – Mark Rober became Covid-trapped at home, takes up birdwatching, but has a problem with squirrels gobbling up all the birdseed.  Sound familiar? But Mark uses his mechanical engineering skills to develop a unique method to deal with his wily adversaries.

This is the guy who previously developed the “glitter-stinkbomb package” to punish his local porch pirates.     [Chuck Almdale]
