Squirrel Conquers The Obstacle Course To Get Some Food
Holly Reyes 1/2/2016
Nothing could keep the daring squirrels away from the bird feeder. Not even the most dangerous obstacle course. Willing to take risks, these squirrels and all their serious intentions went straight for the food.
When a man set up bird feeders in his back yard, he set up an experiment to see if he could feed just the birds, and not the squirrels. It was a simple match: brains against skill. The set up was genius with spinning wheels and slippery tubes, yet the squirrels were determined enough to go the distance. The feeders were already high above the ground, so when the squirrels went for the food, they risked falling several feet to the ground. But that couldn't stop them for a second.
When they fell their first couple tries, they got right back up, knowing the delicious reward waiting for them in the middle of the obstacle course. The man sat at a good distance away filming the process, and it came out looking like a wild video game where the squirrel tries and tries again. When the squirrel finally made it to the food, it was a reward which he rightfully earned
