Out of the Blue

I finally got rid of the pepper-laced suet cake after a couple of weeks, as it turned out to be almost as bird-proof as it was squirrel-proof. I had a couple of regular suet cakes left, so I put one out, and it lasted several days, and I didn't see any squirrels going after it, so I think the peppered cake has the squirrels wary now, which is pretty cool. Now I have a strategy for next winter, as I am going to get a couple of the peppered ones to use at a couple of strategic points during the season to properly train my Pavlov's squirrels.

If your new Pavlovian squirrel strategy doesn't work out, I wonder if you could just throw in the towel and put up feeders for both the birds and the squirrels. Make something extra tasty for the squirrels and perhaps they'll leave the more difficult and less tasty bird feeder alone.
