Squirrel wars: Victory part 2

This great feeder and hanging hook is our other weapon that has stopped the squirrels from eating our bird feed. It is hung from a high branch. It is hilarious to see a squirrel go to the nearby tree and jump, only to flounder to the ground when the bird feeding levers drop....due to their weight. They also try coming down the hook to the top of the feeder. It is steel and they can't gnaw it open...although they clearly have tried. I wonder how their teeth look now. They then sometimes try to climb down the tube, only to slip off or land on the weight-sensitive perches. They flounder to the ground...unhurt. But, it is a great viewing sport.

Us = 2; Suirrells = 0
