We love feeding birds and have quite the buffet offering for them in the backyard. Our feeding station includes various styles of feeders so birds of all sizes can partake. We also try to offer different seeds throughout the year. Upon first setting up our system we put a baffle on both the top and the bottom to stop the squirrels from raiding the feeder. We very quickly learned that the squirrels in our yard were members of the local gymnastic team and could leap and twist their bodies across amazing distances (3 feet) to out-maneuver the baffle. In response we trimmed the trees and bushes nearby thus ending our sponsoring the local gymnastic tournament.

So yes I spent probably 30 minutes staring out of my dining room window watching this crazy squirrel and I'm proud of it. Who needs cable TV when you have critters like this in the backyard?Have I told you we have crazy chickens?
