The squirrel has to slide on the line to the bird feeder because he can't walk on it.

If you like to feed the birds, always put out an extra feeder for the squirrels. And grow sunflowers in the summer. When they get ripe, the squirrels bite off the giant heads and carry them away. Fun to watch.
They are amazing acrobats —
Our squirrels are entertaining at our bird feeders that are on metal hooks for hanging baskets. They hang upside down, all kinds of twists and acrobatics trying to reach the feeders, but we are going to have to duplicate this, this is just great!
Slide Squirrel. For a moment I thought this might be a new 1911 accessory.
Hilarious and impressive!
How many takes did the squirrel do before he got it right?
“Cut! C’mon Rocky, grab the line, slide to the feeder and climb down. Not so difficult.”
Rocky: “What’s my motivation?”
‘Rocky: Whats my motivation?’
Bullwinkle: “A free Secret Squirrel cellphone from the makers of Obamaphone!”
We had a squirrel feeder on an old oak tree that the squirrels were frequently in. We would stick a corn cob on a long nail so they could sit & pick at it. One day something caught my eye...a corn cob moving slowly up a very long limb, high up in the tree. One greedy fellow decided to take the WHOLE cob!
I live in a town famous for it’s gray and black squirrels. Seriously. Awesome little critters. Unfortunately for me- they move too quickly for any photos.
What is missing is the best part - how does the squirrel get off of the
suspended bird feeder? A flying leap to the tree? Or to the ground?
I’m thinking the ground as he’d have nothing to thrust against to get to the tree.....and end up on the ground anyway.
