i feed 3 or 4 times daily. but i wouldnt worry about feeding if i was only gone a week or so. they can feed off the pond.
The squirrels and raccoons would empty the feeder quicker than I could fill it. My neighbor makes a good auto feeder ..........lol
lol my squirrels crawl up those hangers skinny down the chains or wire or ropes and eat away.
Our feeder is now 20 feet in the air, (so we can see it out of the house window, good old slope) I cover the metal pole, 1 inch, with vasoline, I have put up upside down cones, of all types around the pole, the feeders hang down from the pole on that wire rope, smaller than 1/4 of an inch, the squirrels still can get to the food.
They are determined to eat! I now just let them eat what they want. They are fun to watch, even have had them fall off the pole, long drop to the ground.
They love snacking on the sun flowers that come up from the dropped seed.
