I recently moved my one feeder away from the dining room window.
Every time I looked at it, there was a Chipmunk in it
because it was too close to the tree and hanging from a pole that they could climb up...( I thought).
Now it hangs from my gutter..no tree..no pole.
He did what the squirrels do!
He leapt from the brick shelf around my house to the feeder.
Apparently, he forgot how he had gotten there.
Once he had had his fill....
He became quite frantic trying to get out of his "cage".
He kept jumping from the "cage" to the suet holder below and back to the "cage"...
"What is a chippie to do?"
I was beginning to feel quite sorry for him and thought
maybe I would have to rescue him but he figured it out
and leaped back to the wall ..(a bit heavier, I might add).
Maybe I should have my brother in law build him a bridge.
Have a wonderful weekend..stay cool...
