Alas … my Yankee Flipper is no more! What the squirrels could not destroy, my friendly black bear was able to accomplish. My local squirrels were tired of being flipped off my feeder and enlisted the help of a black bear to defeat their nemesis.
However, this story has a happy ending as the folks from Droll Yankees have replaced the plastic cylinder on my flipper w/o charge. Thus, watch out squirrels on northern Minnesota … within days you will be flipped one more. Life is good!
Here is a photo of said bear going after some of my other feeders a few weeks ago.
