Another Feeder Under Siege

It started with this little guy curiously exploring the snow covered porch. Click on the images for a larger view.

An then there were two and the commotion ensued. I’m not sure if this frenetic scurrying and chittering was mating ritual or a display of territorial pique.

Alone at last, with the prize in sight.  I suspect that if this feeder is going to live up to it’s “squirrel resistant” billing, it may need to find a different perch.
