You never saw a squirrel climb up a tree or wall higher than 10 feet?
But not the side of a house with siding.

My biggest concern is, do they attract lots of birds or not?

They should, but limited to ground feeders. Doves, cardinals, grackles, starlings, bluejays, and possibly chickadees and house finches.

That's what you say now... Once your pictures start looking this way, you will hate them.

I think its a good opportunity for the kids to get really up and close.

BTW @pointer if you want to use standard feeders but specifically at your window, you have lots of options.

What's the difference between a rat and a squirrel?
