Welcome to My Front Yard

Some of you know I live in a forest.  Well, not really, but it does seem to be that way when we're raking leaves. The trade-off for the leaves is that we have lots of squirrels. Our job as humans is to help the squirrels evolve to higher thinking. Thus, the squirrely-gig.  This is a contraption my husband built for entertainment value. The silver cylinders have mostly empty peanut butter jars in them.  The entire thing sticks out from the tree about 8 inches, and the mechanism the squirrels try to sit on freely rotates.  Biggy-it by clicking, and watch what happens.

I could see where that would encourage higher level thinking in the squirrels. They probably lie awake in their little beds at night plotting revenge.

That is hilarious! My dad has traps...he traps the squirrels and releases them out in the country. It gives him something to do!

I love it! We should get one here - we have a lot of squirrels in our back yard.
