This is a bird feeder that is meant to be squirrel proof and works by closing up the entrance to the seeds when a squirrel puts its weight on that bottom bar. This very smart red squirrel has figured out that if he stays up on the top bar he can reach down and get seeds without the entrance closing. He is small enough to do it that way. Some of the black squirrels who are larger have found if they hang onto the chimney with a back foot they can reach down and get seeds without stepping on the bar but they can only hang on for a short time and then they fall. It is great fun to watch.
