I took this pic at the Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre in the Veterans Centre garden. They have installed these funnels on all of the poles holding the bird feeders to try to stop the squirrels from eating all of the bird seed. As you can see, it doesn't always work. This squirrel jumped up onto the bird bath that you can see a bit of in the left background and then leaped over to the pole above the funnel and then could reach the bird feeder while hanging onto the pole with a back foot.
