First you have to leap from a nearby tree and catch the bottom of a “squirrel-proof” bird feeder with your feet.
Then maneuver your body upwards
Until you can get your mouth on the food source
Meanwhile, TEN of your less athletic friends are on the ground waiting for you to knock some seeds their way, which indeed happens.
That squirrel missed the feeder a dozen times and fell to the ground. It gives new meaning to “if at first you don’t succeed, try, try again.” I didn’t have the heart to chase him after all that effort. I just refilled the feeder.
DH will have to figure out something else to foil our olympic level rodent.
