The trials and tribulations of a bird feeder

We have decided to get rid of our seed bird feeder. There's a couple reasons why: first and foremost, we have a rat or more likely, rats, that have decided our bird feeder is a very nice spot to get food. Think Ratatouille but not nearly as cute and charming. We've tried traps but to no avail. Gross, disgusting, yeah, we know.

The second reason is this:

Since we're growing delicious goodies in our yard, we don't want to give this lovely lady any more reason to frequent the joint. No deer means good garden, means lots of food for us and we'd like to keep it that way.

It makes me think of our home in Solon and the skunks we found feasting beneath our birdfeeder at night - and the deer who would have head-butting contests to see who would get to dine at the bird feeder!
