So Apparently This is How to Feed Squirrels Directly Via Bird Feeders

And to think that I thought that the feed was for the birds. How silly of me.

Rockhounds, Bird Nerds, and Nature Fans

Thanks so much to the local squirrel who went out of his way to let me know that the “blackbird, mourning dove, and squirrel deterrent cage” that I created to protect my bird feeder should actually be called a “blackbird and mourning dove deterrent / squirrel feeding system.” Also high five to him for sticking his entire face inside the feeder. That was definitely what I was hoping he would do.

So this epic fail has sent me back to the drawing board once more. Oh well. At least he posed nicely for his crime in action mug shot. Little stinker.

    Jo, try *greasing* the pole so the little thief can’t even get up to the feeder….

      It’s hanging on a tree. I have others that are on poles with baffles, and the squirrels don’t mess with those. We noticed that some birds will only come to the feeders if they are in the trees. Trees = Squirrel Ladders. I wouldn’t mind so much if they didn’t snarf down so much of the food. With that said, they don’t hold a candle to the mess the raccoons have made. I have been trying to get a quality video of those critters in action for a couple of weeks. They are the real stinkers!
