Acrobatic Squirrels

If you have read this blog for a while, you know about my never-ending battle with squirrels.  I love my birds, and it is a constant struggle to keep the squirrels out of their food.  Hub took down the wooden post with four bird feeders because it was just too easy for the squirrels to get to.  He assured me that the squirrels would never be able to climb the little metal post he replaced it with.

Shortly after I shot these photos, I smeared a heavy coating of Vaseline on the poles.  We'll see if that works.

*Photos were made through a window; the squirrels would never let me get this close to them otherwise.
