Humiliating giant head squirrel feeder

If you've decided to surrender to the squirrels that raid your bird-feeder and just set out squirrel chow instead, why not use one of Archie McPhee's humiliating giant-head-squirrel-feeders, which allow you to chuckle at your pests even as you capitulate to them?

If you get a Big Head Squirrel Feeder, you'll be able to feed and humiliate squirrels at the same time. Hang this vinyl 5-1/2" x 8" Big Head Squirrel Feeder in front of a window or near a porch, fill it with something squirrels like to eat and when they stick their head up there, the squirrel looks like he has a hilariously huge head with a goofy smile. Keep a camera nearby, you'll want to post a picture on Facebook. Perfect for birdwatchers, dads or anyone else who thinks squirrels should be taken down a peg or two. Has holes in the ears for hanging with string (not included).

  1. Squirrels do have a range of mental states, for example “nut nut nut nut nut” and “wait a minute what’s that!!!?” but as far as I know, “humiliation” is not one of them

    1. I saw a squirrel completely miss the branch he was jumping to a while ago in my yard… he’d figured out humiliation pretty well based on the glare he gave me before running back up the tree :)

    2.  Don’t be a killjoy. They always seem to get the last laugh.  I WANT to humiliate my backyard squirrels! 

    3. For all we know having a big head is a source of pride for them.

      “Say, did you you seed the CHEEKS on this guy?”

  2. I wonder if this would let you get close enough to throttle the little bastard while he’s neck-deep in the chow.

    Err, I mean to guide him gently but firmly into a squirrel-safe transporter-container for relocation to an undisclosed offsite location .. where he can begin his new life as an animal refugee in someone else’s yard.

    1. Squirrels have a nasty bite.  Just ask my cat.  Can you crack a nut with your front teeth?  Gnaw holes in the fascia?

      Gently and firmly is the way to go.  Do a wild release so that he can compete with the squirrels that are already there.  

  3. If you wanted to only make it LOOK like you’ve surrendered, a simple mini-guillotine mechanism installed in the base would make quick work of Marie Antoinsquirrel.

  4. I want one that works like the mask Vincent Price used in the first Dr. Phibes movie.

  5. Frankly I’d rather watch squirrels play in my yard than birds.  They’re far more entertaining and will gladly attempt any obstacle courses you set up for them.

    1. In France we don’t care about squirrels, but we’d love to see this kind of stuff for British people. ^^
      I guess we just need to stuff giants queen’s heads with lamb and mint sauce !

      1. i once spared one’s life from my dog and he started acting like we were friends…or that he just beat me in combat and he is now my master…i dont know which. but he was annoying nevertheless (i prefer it when the squirrel runs away, this one would not and would in fact run up to me)

    1.  Don’t even think about it Ryan.  If you want to see squirrels, just come visit the US.  :)

  6. I’m in a town where backyard fruit trees get decimated by the huge squirrel population. I’ve considered 2 alternative bird, er, squirrel feeders:
    -put out a bird feeder. Stack some strawbales or sandbags behind them to catch your stray birdshot, so you don’t accidentally shoot the neighbors’ kids while doing squirrel population reduction
    -put out a Have-A-Heart trap on the way to the birdfeeder. Then, once there’s a squirrel inside, don’t have a heart.

  7. “Pests?” They are cute (and shy) little fur balls. Always cheers me up when I see one every couple of weeks/months.

    (Yeah, yeah, so I don’t live in an area or country with a gray squirrel problem. I still think that 10 gray squirrels begging for food in an American park are cute and fuzzy though.)

  8. Why the hate against squirrels?  They are at least mammals and not degenerated dinosaurs who vent their frustrations by throwing feces through the air.

    1.  because they are much better at getting under your siding than birds (its the hands) and then they tear open the siding, get in your house, leave it open for those same dinosaurs to set up nests in your house.

      1. Ah yes. Probably much less a problem with red squirrels which are apparently more meek.  Also, more brick houses over here, which are zombie-proof.

  9. Never quite understood the hate squirrels get, they’re awesome little furballs :)

    nevertheless, this squirrel catapult always amuses me :D

  10. If you’re going for something ridiculous why not something that’s not a squirrel head instead? Like, why not put a bird head (for the revenge of the birds whose food they are stealing?) Or maybe a human head? A dog? The possibilities are endless for putting a “mask” on the squirrel without him even realizing it!

  11. It would be funnier if the feeder was a predator’s head (cat, dog, large venomous snake) and the squirrel ate out of its “mouth”.

  12. So people who think squirrels should be taken down a notch can accomplish their mission by setting up a feeding station for squirrels?  Methinks this was designed by a very clever, unashamed squirrel.

  13. Well, thanks to Archie McPhee, I’ve become acquainted with Bibo. 

    Sweet tapdancing christ, wtf.
