Squirrels are regulars in the garden of the Squirrelworks/Sparroworks HQ and at this time of the year they know there is food to be had if pnly they could get past the squirrel-baffles we have on the feeders. usually they cannot but right now we have one clever and athletic guy who has worked out that he can just make it with a big leap from the distant tree … made easier by the nearest feeder being this caged version with handy wires to grab hold of. So, this is where he wants to be …

Sadly (if you are a squirrel) we are cleverer than he is and moved the various feeders around so that now he has to grab hold of a small, tubular metal niger-seed feeder if he is going to make the leap worthwhile and thus far he has failed.

Disappointment …. hah!

 

But he’ll be back, squirrels are good at perseverance if there is the possibility of food.
