Youtube algos sent me this one and I got a kick out of it, so thought I would pass it along for anyone needing a good laugh.

Video is entilted "Building the Perfect Squirrel Proof Bird Feeder", but the creator goes off on a tangent and creates a squirrel obstical course.
Great for a few laughs and I also learned a thing or two.

Hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

cheers!

Fun to watch!

My experience indicates that one squirrel is pretty cool. Multiple squirrels are "The Borg."

A friend of mine has decided to call them "Tree Chickens" and considers them good eating. I suspect in an urban area that would be frowned upon, but squirrels are pretty hard on birds and are out of balance in many areas.

But that video proves they're motivated by food!

I looked at his set up, and wondered how long before the squirrels just jumped right over all his cute little puzzles.... :D

Loved the video, Thank you!!
