Thanks for your ideas.  I ended up using what I had on hand - steel wool and duct tape.  The steel wool raises the height of the reservoir and the duct tape holds it in place.  I know they like to gnaw through things but they don't have any place where they have leverage to do so.  The steel wool makes the top a squishy landing with nothing to give them traction.


At night when I am on the patio I can usually hear "tap tap tap tap tap tap tap" when they are drinking the water.  Last night I heard nothing.  It will be interesting to see the pics from the trail cam later today.
