This squirrel has out-maneuvered us at every attempt to keep him off the feeder. He has jumped up from the ground, a 5 foot leap, and landed on the feeder, so we raised it higher. He’s jumped from tree branches, so we trimmed them. He’s crawled over the edge of the roof and grabbed it while dangling, so we moved it further away from the edge of the roof. Now he’s combined his tricks, leaping from the tree to the roof, crawling on the edge of the eves, gripping it with his hind feet, then leaping through the air to the feeder, landing on his front legs. What a cheeky little squirrel.
