I guarantee you that it will not take long for a squirrel to come along, hang by it's back legs, hoist the cap up by the string and grab a peanut. I would post a picture of this but moved to a new house which has no mature trees. 8)
    That sounds interesting! I have a few mature trees to do this from also-I may have to try that!

    @ czevski and JA--lovely pics of the secret squirrel and the dragonfly! It's so fun to watch those squirrels in action too! I bet you got a lot of fun watching him try to make jump everyday!!

    It's a lot of fun ski, when they get one they will just drop the cap which may bounce some nuts out when the string bottoms out. My brother in law told me it took his Newmarket squirrels 3 days to figure it out. When I hung a cap, the Georgetown squirrels had it down pat within hour. I don't know about Niagara-on-the-Lake squirrels yet.

    That's great, Roy!! I haven't set one up here yet--but will definitely be one to do! I think my squirrels will get the hang of it fast!

    The bird feeder swinging.

    About a week ago, we cleaned off the cobwebs, filled it with some corn and granola cereal which I crushed, and hung it from a tree.

    At last the birds are starting to use it! Yippee.

    This is my first year in decades that I don't have a bird feeder. I always had one sitting on a 4x4 complete with plexiglass way up well greased with Vaseline to keep the squirrels off. Trouble was some seed gets tossed out by Grackles looking for their favorite snack and a family of skunks decided to tear up the grass in search of it. So a circle 12' in diameter of destroyed lawn was my reward for being kind to birds.
