Squirrel Deterrent!

The squirrels have been devouring the bird seeds in my bird feeders, but now I have outwitted them!  I saw this on the internet and decided to give it a try.  I have put a slinky on the pole of the feeder and now the squirrels won't even try to climb up it.  Now I have lots of birds at my bird feeders (but not when I'm standing in front of them with a camera!)!

I set up a time lapse camera hoping to get a picture of a squirrel attempting to climb the pole with the slinky.  All I got was this little chipmunk with a bewildered look.  Previously the chipmunks would climb the pole but now it just eats the seed that has scattered to the ground.
