Stovepipe baffles can be used to deter raccoons, cats, mice, rats, and squirrels, from bird feeders (or eating the eggs or nestlings in nestboxes).No person shall feed or attempt to feed wildlife, or permit the feeding of wildlife on their property, except:
v. A person feeding songbirds as follows:
a. the food intended for the songbirds is placed in a bird feeding device that is sufficiently above grade so as to not attract or be accessible to wildlife;b. the bird feeding device is located on private property, and the property owner or occupant has given permission for the installation and use of the bird feeding device;c. any food spilled from the bird feeding device is removed in a timely manner such that it does not attract other wildlife; andd.the bird feeding device is kept in sanitary condition and in good working order.
