When you decide to feed the little birdies in your yard, you also end up feeding the squirrels.
This little guy was quite brazen. He didn’t even acknowledge me as I was walking up to him, clicking away with my camera.
I thought he was fearless, but as I looked at the photos later, I saw a pale blue spot in the center of the eye that was facing me. I’m afraid that he might be blind in one eye, which is not a good thing with all the cats around here.
But then he did see me!
He quickly grabbed some more.
Even reaching up for one last handful!
Before scampering back up out elaborate systems of hooks.
We have since given up on this bird feeder and gone back to our tried and true Brome 1024 Squirrel Buster Plus Wild Bird Feeder with Cardinal Perch Ring and yes, it may seem expensive, but so is all the bird seed that the squirrels pillage! This is the only bird feeder that keeps squirrels out. And, it’s not that I don’t like the squirrels, but they have zillions of hickory trees in our yard and have plenty to eat!
How about you, how does your garden look this week?
