We noticed that the bird feeders were emptying fast. Then one day as I happened to look out the window, I saw a squirrel sitting atop one of the feeders that Mark hung from a light gauge wire to prevent the squirrels from robbing the feeders. How did the squirrel get atop the feeder?
Then as my young friend, Lucas, and I were sitting at the french doors watching the birds together, we witnessed the squirrel walking out onto a very thin branch from which he jumped onto the high wire, turned upside down and hand over hand climbed to the feeder. See the pictures below:

|There he goes --- down to the feeder|

The question is, how do THEY define 'tiny'?
