We've a squirrel that has recently come-a-visiting to our Pandora (backyard). He must be a teen for he runs everywhere he goes with an attitude. His first endeavor was to unbaffle the squirrel baffle, thereby emptying the bird feeder with great haste. From this perch, he jumps to the tray of colorful wool tidbits and sunflower seeds. They all scatter in the collision like confetti at a party. Not to be thwarted by this mischievous somewhat naughty one that I've named Eddie Haskell ( for those who remember Leave It To Beaver). Don enters the picture, first with a bb gun. Now here I would admit to being upset if he could EVER hit anything. Then I see Don in a full wrestle with the baffle. Ahhhhh, the activities of a January day....... BUT, low and behold the baffle begins to baffle. Eddie runs up the pole and bumps his head on the baffle. He does it again. He jumps down and runs the perimeter of the pond. He runs it again. He runs up another pole of a feeder which has a no-squirrel lever for feeding. Now more wiser and older squirrels jump to the top of this feeder: spread eagle, hang down the front, open the lever and proceed to eat hanging somewhat upside down. Eddie is not so wise in his endeavor.
