Pretty Smart Squirrel

I guess it is true you can't outsmart a hungry squirrel forever. We hung this bird feeder on the front porch four months ago and have really enjoyed watching the birds. Until this weekend the squirrels were restricted to picking up seeds on the ground. I don't know if the squirrels sent out for a really smart squirrel but this guy figured out how to get to the feeder. He climbed up the side of the house, jumped 3 feet to the top of the porch column and then jumped 3 feet to the chain holding the feeder. In the first picture, he is trying unsuccessfully to chew though the wire holding the feeder. In the second picture, he gives up on the wire and dumps the seeds for all his friends waiting on the ground to enjoy.
