When I opened the door this morning there were all kinds of little paw prints in the snow outside my door. It’s going to be horribly cold the next two days (15 below temps or somewhere around there — seriously when it gets that cold it doesn’t matter if its 15 below or 19 below — it’s just going to be a darn cold walk to the bus stop Monday. The schools have already closed on Monday in anticipation). Anyway, I finally remembered to bring home the birdfeeder one of my bosses gave me (because a secret elf told him my other one had broken). So I dumped the last of the seed in to keep the birds fed in the cold and refilled the other one.
This visitor, which showed up about noon, I think is trying to figure out whether or not it’s possible to take a flying leap off that fence and land on the feeder. But, if he tries he will be bitterly disappointed to find that the new feeder is squirrel proof. LOL If he’s tricky he can still manage to get seed out of the old one but not the new one.
The birds at that feeder are very messy.
But check out the third photo
Do you see that hole in the snow. That is a squirrel hideyhole. I don’t know if there’s food stashed in it or if a squirrel thought he had found something, but just before I took this photo a squirrel head popped up out of it and went running off.
They can’t be too undernourished because they were some very fat squirrels.
