Backyard gardeners and birdwatchers have gone to great lengths to keep squirrels from raiding the crop or the bird feeder, but squirrels will not be deterred when they know there's something to eat at the end.

They harness practice, memory, and logic to learn how to negotiate the weirdest of barriers we place on them. -via Laughing Squid
