The Squirrel Proof Feeder

We paid a little extra for these bird feeders,
they are squirrel proof and they came with a guarantee.
I will post these pictures in the order I took them
no explanation is necessary!!

Warning: There are a lot of pictures,
but I am sure they will make you smile!!



















There will be a p.s. to this...
as the hubs is very busy!!
I told him I was keeping score,

Squirrels 1, The Hubs 0

Stay tuned...he does not plan on loosing!!

Good luck to the hubs. ;)

Bonnie said...

Oh, I have concluded there are no squirrel proof feeders. I do love my squirrel if for nothing else their tenacity. Yes I will be smiling all day. Bonnie

I happen to have this very same bird feeder ! I love it it is a great color and the leaves are cool on there I have not had any squirrel problem. perhaps try putting different seed in it for awhile like just thistle seed for finches.
anyway I like your taste in feeders

good luck hubs !

I guess nobody told the squirrels that these feeders were squirrel proof.Yikes,they will go to any length to get to that food.

Sorry Hubs but I hope you loose.. this is too precious and funny to think about stopping his amusing antics.
I want to see more of 'little Rascal'.
LOL, Debbie.

Mamabug said...

LOL! Never underestimate the mind and dexterity of a squirrel!

Tricia Hays said...

That ol tree rat is hilarious!!! No such thing as squirrel-proof, is there? ... except to screw the lid down... =0

Good luck, hubs! =)

Adrienne said...

Oh.my.word. too funny! perfect giggle for the end of my workday! weekend here i come!!!! AND both "squirrel proof" feeders we've tried are equally as effective!!

Giga said...

Uśmiałam się z wyczynów wiewiórki. One potrafią zrobić prawie nie możliwe rzeczy, żeby dostać się do jedzenia. Pozdrawiam.
I laughed with the exploits of squirrels. One can do almost impossible things to get to eat. Yours.

Clytie said...

Ah Debbie. I started off smiling, then got the giggles, and finally progressed to full blown belly laughs. What a wonderful picture story! Can't wait to see what hubby comes up with next!

Linda Chapman said...

Love this post! We have the very same feeder!! The only one we have that is truly squirrel safe is the one for the finches.

LD does battle with the squirrels, too. Bird seed is SO expensive to use as squirrel feed!

I won't tell you how Louis Dean discourages them.......

Blessed Serendipity said...

Squirrels are so darn entertaining, even when they steal the birdseed. He is so cute. I enjoyed your pictures.

xo,

Too cute! I love the one of the squirrel poking his nose back up through the top!

eileeninmd said...

Funny series, Debbie! I do not think they make a bird feeder that is really squirrel proof. No such thang! Have a happy weekend!

Changes in the wind said...

YOu need to send these pictures aLong with the guarantee back to the company for a full refund.

Cheryl @ The Farmer's Daughter said...

LOL! I'm betting on the squirrels!

rainfield61 said...

We learn,

so is the squirrel.

Ida said...

Oh my goodness those are so hilarious! - You should send them to the company that makes "squirrel proof" feeders!
You've got to admire their tenacity and hey, they need to eat too.

Ellie said...

These are great pictures and did make me laugh. They are kind of cute(and sneaky) wee things aren't they?

Farm Girl said...

That is so cute. I am glad the squirrel found something to eat anyway. :) Do they give your money back?

Dina J said...

I had the same feeder for a while. I got way more squirrels than birds. I finally took it down. I never had one crawl down the middle. Pretty funny.

Julie G. said...

Very cute post! My how acrobatic those critters are. Squirrels never give up. Thanks for the giggle!

Lin said...

Yep, "squirrel proof". Hahaha!

I have found that the more you fight them, the more frustrated you get. Just give in and give the little guy his own food. And embrace their visits.

Susan said...

Oh yes, I can feel the tension in the air ;D)

Betty Manousos said...

your wonderful photos just brightened up my morning!

amazing header, too. i love it!

happy sunday!

S. Etole said...

You're right! They did make me laugh!

Susan said...

How funny! Squirrel proof my butt! Great pics!

Beth said...

I have found from experience that the squirrels always win! ;-)

I am visiting you from Jill's site and I am your newest follower.

Oh how funny are those squirrels. I am watching one perched on my feeder right now. Oh that is just too funny.
