Squirrels are pretty smart

So last weekend we decided to hang a bird feeder from our little tree outside our condo. We figured it would give the cats something else to look at to pass the time. So everything's all hunky dory and then Friday I notice that all of a sudden there's an extreme amount of bird seed missing...I just figured the birds got really hungry. So Jim goes out there to fill the feeder, but no such luck...



...the squirrels chewed on all the little plastic attachments until one broke loose and let out all the bird seed. That explained why the squirrel was hanging around a lot munching on bird seed. I just figured the birds were messy and dropping everything...lol...


So today at Lowe's I bought another one. It has copper attachments, but the tube is still plastic...lets hope the squirrels don't chew through this one.

Good luck! My mom bought a feeder that claimed to be squirrel proof and those little guys still got into it!

I will take all of your squirrels and trade them for our raccoons. Seriously, they are like ROUSs...
