|The amazing pole-dancing squirrel!|
|You can't tell by the photo, but the squirrel was actually slooowly sliding down the pole while eating the birdseed!|
This year they are at it again. Yesterday I captured some shots of this pole-dancing squirrel going after my small feeder. They really are fun to watch and pretty amazing. Dan and laughed our butts off watching this show, squirrels behaving badly.
I had to stand back from the window so I didn't scare it off, and of course the screen is in the way, but I thought you might enjoy the acrobatics. This morning I tried a trick that worked to keep my cats from scratching up the legs of my my wooden rocking chair, I wrapped clear box tape sticky side out around the pole. Either they won't like it and it will keep them off the pole, or it will help them grab it better and they'll give me the big thumbs up! When they return, I'll be sure to take note of their reactions!
