Bah ha ha ha! It is hypnotizing.
We had (wrecked in the ice storm) one of those feeders with a big round anti-squirrel hood on it. We also have a persistent little red squirrel that tried each and every day to get at it. He jumped from a tree onto the hood and then tried to lean over the hood and grab the perch there, but he soon got overbalanced and fell the 8 feet to the ground. Every time.He also sometimes tried to shinny up the metal pole by climbing at super-speed but never maked it more than halfway before sliding back down. I swear the birds lined up on the fence laughing their feathery little butts off and then casually fly over when the fun was over for a snack or two. Actually when I had suet in bags on it, the sparrows of all birds would chase the squirrel away.Haven't seen the little squirrel for a month or so now. Hope it's ok because when we get the feeder back up in the spring, the fun starts again.
awww. I love squirrels. I feel bad for him. I used to have a squirrel feeder, the kind they lift the lid and dive in -so cute to see their little bums sticking out. My grandpa couldn't find one so I gave him mine. Need to find a replacement!
