Squirrel 1, me 0

Persistent. Determined. Ingenious. Clever. Acrobatic. These are some but certainly aren’t all the adjectives I could use to describe the latest squirrel to defeat my latest squirrel-proof bird feeder.

He had to scamper up that 1/2″ pole, then latch his back feet onto a non-moving part of the feeder, leaving his front feet free to grab the tasty sunflower seeds. In theory, the outer sleeve of the feeder would slide over the opening, denying him access to the seeds. In practice, though, he had no problem enjoying as many seeds as he wanted.

I haven’t given up yet. The cardinals want me to keep trying. It’s on. Let’s see if there isn’t a way to thwart his (and many friends’) efforts!
