Day 45- Who’s in charge here?
A few days ago, I bought a modest bird feeder. I hung it temporarily on our deck, because I couldn’t reach the tree branch- and wondered to myself if the squirrels might be able to reach it. Yesterday, I noticed there was a LOT of birdseed under the feeder- and a bunch of little birds (sorry, don’t know what kind. . .) and a dove were having a great time pecking around the flower pots getting their fill of birdseed. Today, when I came home, I found an empty feeder and THIS. . .
I took this photo through the glass door. It was hard to get a good shot of him- but look at the “starburst” in his eye. That is not photoshopped in- I guess it’s a reflection of the glass door. It was noon, so the lighting was difficult.
And then, all of a sudden, I noticed THIS (the photo is out of focus, but will give you an idea of what I am dealing with):
Two more squirrels were frolicking on the deck, around and over the plants and railings having a wonderful time. Their tummies were full, and they were feeling oh so frisky.
I took this last shot before I opened the door, scaring them (temporarily) away.
I am NOT refilling the feeder until it is hung in a better spot.
