So much for my newest squirrel-proof feeder. I will have to try to get a longer shot of their technique, but they have certainly figured this one out after a couple of months of failure at getting seed from it. Clockwise from top left (link in each description leads to a larger image):
- on approach to the feed dispensing tray while hanging upside down from the side of the feeder
- snatching food from the tray without putting weight on the bar that closes the ports
- seeds in mouth, on the way back up top
- enjoying ill-gotten gains before repeating the process until that mean, two-legged creature comes out of the house to chase him
Meanwhile, I'll be sharing this over at communal global shortly... my today was total chaos due to the above mentioned home improvement project so I'm sharing this collage of squirrels from a few days ago.
