Our Products:

Please note - we don't paint or seal any of our products because it's safer for the birds not to. They are either simply burned (blowtorch), plain cedar, or the color ones are done with a water-based color stain that's applied and immediately removed. Because of this, these will age out on the elements. If you want to keep it looking new, we recommend applying a non-toxic, water-based, outdoor sealant.

Below are the products we offer currently, but any feeder can be made in any finish if you'd like, just send us an email at squirrelbearwoods@gmail.com
