Fly By Try
The magpies are always trying to find the easiest, most efficient method of getting at the peanut butter smeared on the swinging pine cone. I keep challenging them by changing the configuration to make their life more interesting. After this setup got old, I lengthened the string so the pine cone would swing more when they go at it. They’re pretty smart and more persistent than I am at the game so it generally doesn’t take too them long to pick the pine cone clean no matter where it is hanging.
