Squirrel 1 - Eric 0

Last week Wednesday my parents dropped off this new bird feeder called a suet feeder. It took a couple of days for the birds to show up and start getting interested in it and then yesterday for some reason this squirrel was all over the suet feeder. I thought it was most amusing as I figured he can’t really get too much of the food out as there is a wire cage around the whole thing. I was working inside in the morning so I from time to time would open the deck door and scare him away.

Such a silly squirrel trying to get the food.. Good luck!

This went on all day and into the afternoon as I was then working from the shed I grabbed my old Canon G7X to take a photo from a distance and you can see him sitting on the feeder here 🤷‍♂️.

Keep it up squirrel but stop wasting your time.

Later in the afternoon, I went inside to see the kids after school and as I walked up the deck and looked to my right I saw this sight below 😱😖. Oh come on, he actually opened the cage up and took the whole block of food that was in there.

Ok you win this round squirrel, hope you enjoy the big meal.

Looks like I am going to have to rethink this feeder before I add more food to it as they obviously outsmarted me this time 😔.
