|Baited with a half of a pecan and a few dabs of peanut butter for scent.|
|Another view. The hardware cloth shield pivots on some roofing nails. The next iteration will use deck screws and fender washers.|
|A slightly different view. The top of the shield is 4-1/2" high.|
I also have some hazel nuts that I intend to harvest. I can use nets to stop the blue jays but nets will not slow down the squirrels.
I expect that I will need to go through three iterations of the trap set-up before it works well. That is part of being successful, to expect failures and to have a plan(s) to make changes to remedy short-comings.
