I got a new bird feeder yesterday .....
Guaranteed to be 'squirrel-proof'. right.

Lol... We've got one too... They can't get into it, but they jump at it and swing it like a pinata until the birdseed falls on the ground. Then they feast on the below!
Squirrels are always more cunning than one thinks they are!

Ha! There is no bird feeder that is squirrel proof...in my experience. They are smart little guys. Have a lovely weekend!!

Oh, tricky little trickster... Squirrels are very clever. It's too bad we can't train them to do something useful.

Oh, that was hilarious!!! I've seen those squirrels in all kinds of strange positions in order to reach food!

But squirrel's need to eat too!

This is so timely and funny! I barely rescued our new goldfinch feeder from a squirrel who was chewing a hole in it yesterday. I taped up the hole and now I need to hang the feeder from a long chain. That's the only way I've found to keep them from getting into even 'squirrel proof' feeders. We're also putting up a homemade feeder just for the squirrels away from the birdfeeders in hopes that they'll leave them alone. The kids feel bad about the squirrels being hungry but they also get mad about the squirrels eating all the bird food.

Nasty little critters those squirrels are. I am not a fan. The squirrels here have decided my Lady Bank Rose leaves are a treat and keep eating then off as fast as they grow. And don't get me started on what they do to my pecan crop!

I agree with Melissa. Anyone who makes a truly squirrel proof feeder is made for life.
The squirrels have won another battle here. Our window feeder was on the ground yesterday morning..

There is no such thing as squirrel proof. Well possibly a nuclear bunker, but I'm guessing it would just take them a while longer to get in! ;)
