I have my birdfeeder suspended from a piece of chltheline that runs from one tree to another. This was done to keep squirrels out of it. The feeder sat about 4 ft. off the ground. This worked well until about 2 weeks ago. A new squirrel found out that he can jump from a flatfooted stance, high enough to reach the perch and then pull himself up on the feeder. So yesterday I went out and raised the feeder another foot and a half. This morning he was out there doing back flips trying to reach it. I have been standing by with the camera trying to get video of him jumping but he won't do it while I am standing in the window! But I will keep trying!

Bet he looks pretty silly :)
My grandmother had put up her birdfeeder suspended about 10 feet off the ground with a thin wire running from the garage to the house. We used to watch the acrobatic squirrels use the hand-over-hand upside down method to walk the wire. Some fell, but none gave up. Very athletic squirrels. Hope yours don't discover that method of getting to the feeder (unfortunately they learn from each other)
