Squirrel Hotel

Ailz bought a thing advertised as a Squirrel Hotel. It's a little wooden house- like a Swiss cottage. You fill it with peanuts and the squirrels reach in through the front door and help themselves.

I put it in a spot a climbing animal should have no difficulty reaching and waited.

The tits found it first. You see them flying away with whole peanuts in their beaks. But the squirrels remain oblivious to it and are still raiding the bird feeder- which they can only get at by clambering up a pole and leaping a five foot gap.
