More than likely praying that I'll keep the jar filled and a corn cob on the spike, what a begger.:D

Nice... is that setup something you built for squirrels, or is it for birds and the squirrels just came in and took over.

You were thinking he was praying... I was thinking he ate too much and couldn't get his butt back through the hole to get out.

Thanks, It's really something to watch them, You should have seen it when a blue jay was in the jar and a squirrel tried to get in. :D :D

Thanks, I actually built this for the squirrels, I have seen similiar ones now for sale, I've seen them in stores like 'Tractor Supply'. I have seen birds go in and a few chipmunks. It's really fun to watch. If you make one the toughest thing is finding the 1 gal. wide mouthed jar. I built mine from plans in Birds & Blooms magazine. and I modified it a little

If you look at this thread you can see the minor modification I made ( a screw to keep the jar from sliding back) plus the corn holder I also made and put on the other side of the fence post.
