Squirrels!

I have found a way of providing fatballs for the birds, as you will see from this handy little container. However, the squirrels, never to be outdone, are on the case, no matter how many acrobatics it takes.








Back to the drawing board!

Thankfully I've yet to see any squirrels try to get to my bird feeders.
It's also noticeable that the birds aren't using then either recently! xx

Same here, Flighty. Maybe they've had a better offer elsewhere. :)

Very determined, they are, Paul.

Hi Jenny.
Your last number of blog entries have been come out of you like bullets from a machine gun - Wow, I like it. Please keep it up for its always a joy to read them.

I remember a number of years ago a TV-program that someone set up an obstacle/assault course for squirrels to get to his bird feeder, truly amazing how they managed to find their way through it. I believe there’s no such thing as a squirrel proof bird feeder, many have tried but they always find a way to get to the feed - Mick.

I am trying, Mick! I think I saw that programme too but I live in hope of being to outwit them some time.
