I think you meant to say Jeffrey Tubeout's backyard.
Tinkerbell is doing something there?
I cant believe that people (probably?) actually paid to see that.
Tired of squirreling away nuts, decided to go into b....- nah, couldn't be
In their zeal to applaud Yoko Ono's musical talents, her serious work as an artist is often overlooked by her admirers.
She should pack up and take her act 75 blocks north to the Apollo Theater where I'm sure the audience would give her the appropriate (shepherds hook) response.
Only in America could at least 2 people consider that art. (1 to perform it and 1 to book them)
HAHAHA!!! Here's what's funny.... buddy of mine built this sort of thing and nailed it to his bird feeder, in an effort to keep the squirrels away! Guess what.... it actually worked! Well.... for a time at least. Eventually they figured out a way around it so the effort was moot. Similar to the effort here IMO
So are you saying either your buddy should have hung his creation in an art museum, or Ms. Ono should have hung her creation on a bird feeder? I'm old and easily confused.
LOL!!! Actually, I think both might've been possible! You should've seen that thing when he was done with it.... that bird feeder looked like a medieval torture device! But even still, the squirels proved to be smarter Go figure They actually figured out how to manuver around all the prongs and get to the seeds anyway. At first, all they did was chew through the rope and thereby allowing the feeder to crash to the ground and spill out all the seeds. So... my buddy hung it with steel wire, so..... they learned to get around the prongs. It took em a while but eventually they got good enough at it that it was like the prongs were not even there! Today he feeds the birds and the squirrels equally, having gotten rid of his Ono inspired feeder and crying uncle.
I wish I was as smart as a squirrel. Those little boogers can figure out just about anything given time. We have a bunch of them at one of the golf courses we play, and we always get an order of fries to feed them at the turn because they all hang out waiting on the back nine to be fed. They'll come up to you and chatter at you, and take the fries right out of your hand. They waddle more than run now.
Those squirrels all now have coronary artery diseases and an extra 1/2 pound of weight they don't need.
But seriously, they are clever. I've seen them figure out some very interesting feeders - or ways into bird feeders people tried to keep them out of. No wonder they are so plentiful.
They're just like BDLH, they don't care! I know we probably shouldn't feed them, but hey, we both enjoy it, and nobody lives forever, might as well enjoy it while you're here!
I know folks that have trained them and also chip monks to come up to them into the yard and take peanuts direct from their hands. Of course... you do have to worry that they are also very good at getting into houses, so that's probably not a good idea, but whatever.
if you don't have tinitus, this should do it...
First, I wouldn't get my fingers anywhere near a squirrels mouth/teeth.
Second, a squirrel can chew through anything (except MAYBE steel).
Didn't your folks teach you about the birds and the bees and the squirrels in the trees?
Well, to be fair, they don't get near the squirrel's teeth. The squirrel takes it in his hands from you and eats it. But, exactly, they can have bacteria you don't want.
Squirrel chewed through the wood vents up at the peak of my house by hanging upside down from the trim boards. Removed several of the louvers then chewed through metal screen. She then built a nest in the insulation and had four babies. After she moved out, I built custom squirrel-proof vents with metal covered trim edges and hardware cloth over the louvers.
