Squirrel Up A Pole

Went to take Cabal out for a walk and though he loves to chase cats, he doesn't seem to be interested chasing squirrels (although, he will bark at brown-headed cowbirds at the feeder, so he's not all bad).

When we passed by the feeders, two squirrels ran for the woods. A third ran up the bird feeder pole and up into the raccoon baffle. Cabal trotted past, not noticing the quivering piece of metal tubing meant to keep squirrels and raccoons from reaching the bird feeder. As Cabal forged ahead, I took a moment to snap a photo of the squirrel:

The squirrel eventually scrambled down and joined his companions in the woods.
