Feeding the Squirrels

We have a bungee squirrel feeder hanging from the tree in the backyard.  The idea is for the squirrels to jump up and hang on to and eat the corn. It is fun to watch them bungee as they eat. 
A couple of the squirrels have now discovered that they can climb up the tree to where the bungee wire is attached, reach out and drag the wire over to the side of the tree which they hang on to with their back legs while holding the corn with their front legs and eating the corn off the cob.  Either way is an entertaining way to watch the squirrels.
