I'm probably pushing my luck by leaving the phillips driver out. But joking apart, if you were to see the situation & location of the feeder, you too would be as mystified as I am. It just doesn't seem possible nor logical.

Are you doubting my mechanical skills, how very dare you? No it was screwed on fine, besides, there's no trace of it in the garden, let alone the immediate area.


As an after thought, had the pesky squirrel managed to gain access to the feeder, why not just sit there & have a good feed as they used to do before I outwitted 'em?

Methinks we all agree, Freddie the fox is favourite.

I doubt if it's deer, we aren't rural enough. Fox is the favourite, never thought to measure the print distance. It could have been recceing for an assault on the peanut feeder.  We have seen a fox in the garden before, but being summer, no prints left to compare with the snow prints.

I've more than once had that idea. But I'm still debating whether to install a dash-cam in my car, which would take priority. But as all my feeders are now squirrel proof   I'll concentrate on a dash-cam.


Still had no suggestions as regards my previous forum thread ie snow prints. My first thought would be a pogostick balancing fox!

See original post

 I've seen plenty of squirrel's antics both in my own garden & on videos & yes, they are very enterprising & entertaining. In the above link though, the jar is obviously anchored down, so our hero can get a purchase on the lid. To safeguard my feeder now, I've inserted a screw through a hole I've drilled through the cartridge & the holder. So to be fair, I've left the phillips driver nearby!!

They are clever at working out how to get at feeders, but unscrewing a container that's impossible for me using one hand,  I think not.

Hi again,


Now this is weird. I recently sited a peanut butter feeder well off the ground next to Squirrel proof feeders. The peanut butter cartridge is screwed  into its housing, tightly. This morning I was watching the various birds lining up for their seed & others queuing up for the peanut butter. I then went into town for a while, when I came back, the cartridge was no longer in its holder?? & nowhere on the deck, amongst the shrubbery, nor rolled down the garden paths. It simply is no longer in the garden. I am totally baffled. To remove an empty & reload a new cartridge, the housing has to be held in one hand whilst screwing the cartridge. Its impossible to remove without holding the housing. Stumped

Hi all,


Can anyone identify these footprints? They are in an almost 


straight line & look bizarre. Fox seems to be the favourite, but I'm not sure.
