Perky-Pet Squirrel Stumper
Categories: Birds, Wildlife

A couple of weeks ago I told you guys that we have some sneaky squirrels in our backyard. If you don’t remember click here to see them hanging from the bird feeder. About a week ago I bought a new feeder that claimed to be squirrel proof. The exact name was the Perky-Pet Squirrel Stumper. It only took them a couple of days to figure out how to hang like they did on the other feeder. Last weekend while I was out and about JP went and bought wire to hang the feeder from since we figured the metal hangers were giving them an advantage. It took them a few more days but today they figure out they can shimmy down the wire and get to the feeder. The funny thing is that I have seen them fall a bunch of times because they can’t really get back up the wire. We did however just watch this squirrel get back up the wire. Sigh.

It is hard to tell from the angle of the picture but the feeder is actually about 3 or so feet from the trunk of the tree. What do we do next?

    Have you tried a squirrel baffel, so even if they approach the feeder from above, they will fall off the baffle?
