    Any chance these could be mounted to keep squirrels off of them?

      That’s a great question! I have no idea how it could be done. I have trouble keeping the squirrels out of my regular bird feeder. Maybe if you put it on a “weaker” branch the squirrel wouldn’t venture out.

    I have heard that peanut butter can choke chickadees — however there is a “butter” that is sold by Wild Birds Unlimited (franchises) that you can spread on trees, so I guess you could use it on these TP feeders.

      I googled “Chickadees and peanut butter”. The top 3 hits are from top bird organizations and pb is a favorite food of chickadees. It is okay. I smeared pb on a tree trunk during the ice storms and the birds attacked it. HOWEVER, I did note that the starlings had difficulty, sitting on branches afterwards and rubbing their beaks on the bark to try to get the pb out or off. They all lived. More research is needed. Maybe mix pb with veg oil and flour.
