I apologize for the grainy photo, but trying to get pictures of active animals isn't easy. They have a habit of running away before the camera is even eye level. Some day I'll have them on webcam, so you can enjoy their antics too. There is one on the ground cleaning up the seeds the birds drop; the other is relaxing on the fence - formulating the next attack. He doesn't like eating off the ground.
The 'baffle' is the large black umbrella like thing above the feeder; it's slippery, but these guys are big and smart. I'm hoping I've got the right distance between the baffle and the food. These guys will hook their tails around the hook at the top and stretch to reach the seeds. It's amazing, so we'll see...
Tomorrow I will know if I've finally beaten them - funny thing is, I'm betting on the squirrels!
Oh, and I know another distraction from writing, do you blame me? The weather has been so beautiful!
I also have a new post on my blog Murderous Imaginings - I hope you check it out and become a follower. I've dedicated that blog to research and information on murder for the writer so inclined.
