Outsmarting the Squirrels

I think I finally outsmarted the squirrels…until tomorrow.
But for now I’ve put safflower seed in my bird feeder. I watched the squirrels prance up to the feeder like they were in charge. They took turns jumping up the pole, looking at the feeder and jumping away.
Meanwhile, I now have chickadees, titmouses, cardinals, woodpeckers and more eating at the feeder again…because there are no squirrels to chase them off.
Next step is to set up a squirrel feeder.
