Thx, ladies.

Don't they just look awestruck that Mom should be so bold as to be up there, lindapalm? I like that single kit looking out at (but not seeing) the camera, too. They're just adorable little critters!

Yep it was, and no it isn't! It still works for the small red squirrels, but the PVC is getting weathered enough now that the larger gray squirrels and the raccoons aren't having any trouble climbing it. We were going to change it for new (and therefore slippery) PVC, but to do that we have to get the shepherd's hook apart at the ferule, which is hidden by the pipe, and the blasted thing is corroded so it won't come apart. So we're sorta stuck with the sticky PVC. The raccoons and gray squirrels don't seem to mind.
