Steve Barley has dubbed himself the Squirrel Man of Hitchin, which seems quite apt. He lives in the town of Hitchin in England and on the odd morning you can find him on Squirrel Watch at 5:30 a.m., hoping to provide breakfast to several black squirrels that frequent his backyard.
But breakfast is not for free. The squirrels must first traverse what he calls an assault course that is peppered with various obstacles. And Barley is watching from above, taking video of the events that unfold in the backyard.
Better still, Barley provides an entertaining running commentary on the acrobatic squirrel action on display.
Barley has made several black squirrel assault course videos, and this one features three ropes strung with obstacles that end in a major food prize. His patience on Squirrel Watch pays off, as two squirrels scramble across two different courses, and a surprise visitor appears at the end.
Now, don't you want to go out and make a squirrel assault course in your yard?
