HELP – What do we do now?

24 02 2009

It was a wild night last night and when we got up we noticed that the top had blown off our bird feeder – or so we thought! On closer inspection we found that the yellow plastic was chewed through and even the plastic tube filled with seed had huge holes in it. We replaced the top but when we next looked out it was back on the ground and our little friend, the red squirrel, was sitting chewing on a sunflower seed.


He then decided it was time for another and showed us just how agile he is!


This way, then twist round, then…….

Now that wasn’t too difficult.

img_0154I’m really quite a clever chap…… for some more!

img_0168We will definitely have to organise a better system for next winter so that the bird feeders are squirrel free. I have been reading about special squirrel feeders that they have to learn to open – that should be fun!

Your photos of this beautiful squirrel are absolutely wonderful! I hope you were able to solve your feeder problem this winter. They can be very persistent rascals.

Thanks for your comment. We haven’t seen much of the squirrel this winter. I bought a metal squirrel resistant feeder, that seems to have done the trick.
