It didn’t take long for Mr. Squirrel to figure out how to flip the lid off the bird feeder, spilling seed onto the ground for easier eating! We are not amused. Yah, I know, they all have to eat, but if you’ve ever had one (or more) of these saucy creatures in your yard, you’ll know how destructive they can be. It’s a real good thing he’s so cute! And this little one was almost tame, allowing me to get within a couple feet of him before he scrambled up the nearest pine tree, where he sat and scolded me.
I won’t be too hard on him — both of his ears are bloodied, as if the top of his head might have been in an animal’s mouth. A kitty lunch that got away, perhaps?
There are chickadees, gold finches, and one junco at the feeder, not to mention the acrobatic blue jays. I had chickadees feeding out of my hand this morning — what adorable little creatures.
Anyway, that’s the latest from the Bird Seed Café on this extraordinarily beautiful day!
