neighbour has a couple of birdfeeders that are always stocked with birdseed. I always see local squirrels hang upside down in order to eat the birdseed, dropping excess seeds to the ground for the birds.
___There are many squirrels that use this feeding station, jumping from the neighbour’s roof to nearby tree branches, slowly shimmy backwards down the birdfeeder and hang by their hind legs. This allows them to use both hands to eat at their leisure. Maybe only young squirrels are able to feed this way.
___A possible anti-squirrel solution would be to cover the top half of the birdfeeder with a plastic bottle so that there would be no grip for the squirrel, but still allow the birds to eat in peace.
___The last photo shows that this squirrel has had some tussles with other local thugs and came out for the worst.
___Where there is a will, there is a way.
