Tree Rat Feeding Station

I enjoy squirrels and that's why I was so delighted today when the 3 squirrels I had under my squirrel feeding station ran off a fourth one who was interested too. I have been putting up an ear of corn for the squirrels, but I had a nearby birdfeeder that was under an anti-squirrel baffle. The squirrels just jump on the feeder now and dump the contents on the ground and eat it there.

I realize that they are rodents, but I think the plush fur and puffy tail makes squirrels so much more attractive than rats. And, more importantly, squirrels typically do not move into human houses like rats.
