Andrew bought me a new poll for Christmas. He attached it to the railing where we could still see the feeder from the house but where there would be less mess against the window from the birds.
The feeder is designed that although he can get on the ledge of the feeder, he has problems staying there for any period of time.
So it is grab and go.
Back to the post and down.
At least they have entertainment value to the other occupants of the house.
