Seed Catch Tray and Squirrel Guard Solves 2 Problems with One Product!

Amazon.com:  Droll Yankees giant seed tray squirrel guard with clamp
If you always have a mess under your bird feeders like I do, this product from Amazon.com serves double duty.  I have a bunch of squirrels that love to climb the feeder poles.  This large seed tray/squirrel baffle keeps the squirrels on the ground, and the seeds that land in this tray are available to the birds so they don't go to waste.  There are several woodpeckers that work at the tube feeders, pulling seeds out before picking the 'perfect one'.  The rest end up on the ground; so this baffle solves that problem, nicely!
