It took him a few weeks of trying before he finally figured out how to get to the bird feeder filled with sunflower seeds. He could not get to it from the top because of the baffle. He finally learned he could jump from the porch rail to the feeder. He grabbed on with one of his back feet then would swing over near the port and grab hold with a front paw. He then quickly grabbed a seed or seeds and jumped back down to the rail to eat. He repeated the routine until he got his fill or was disturbed. He was too fast getting up and back down for me to ever get a picture of him hanging on the feeder.
He seemed to have never tired of trying and he sure never gave up. He learned how to get food from every feeder but one. He was hilarious at times with some of the positions he got in and how he would catch himself after every fall from the feeder. He was one smart little squirrel.
