Squirrel Ingenuity

I knew that neighborhood squirrels had been raiding my bird feeders this winter, but I did not know the method by which the crafty rodents had been defeating my "squirrel-proof" feeder. It turns out that I placed a bird feeder just a few inches too close to the feeder, which allows a squirrel just enough space to lean over, grab the feeder, and shake the device, sending a cascading wave of sunflower seeds to the ground.

I suppose I do not have the heart to move the bird feeder, at least not until the snow melts this spring.
