I have always tried to put bird seed out for the birds. But it had been a while mainly because I kept forgetting to get some. When I put some out a month ago, it did not attract the birds but the squirrels (and the rats who were forced out of the zombie house nearby- yay rat poison).
But back to the squirrels.
I had already put up a hanging plant that I found in hopes of attracting back the hummingbirds that found my flowers in the past. Ironically the squirrels like the plant too.
This is the daily event:
Hello, Ms Squirrel.
“Oh, hello!” says Ms Squirrel.
“Oooo! What is that?” asks Ms Squirrel.
“I LOVE this plant!??” says Ms Squirrel.
“What are you looking at?? I’m just a squirrel in a hanging plant – nothing to see here!” says Ms Squirrel.
“Hmmm….what did I find?”
“I must jump onto the hummingbird feeder!! I MUST!!”
“Now I will show you my rope climbing skills. I don’t know what I’m looking for – but I will climb up higher to see if I can find the elusive bird seed.”
Ms Squirrel decided to avoid jumping on the bird seed feeder. I guess she decided that it was too risky.
I have chased this squirrel from the porch and my plants about 10 times today as I do not want her to ruin my plants and wreck my hummingbird feeder. Granted, it would be funny to see the hummingbird chase off the squirrel. The hummingbird has chased off all of the birds including a big crow. It’s been funny.
Yeah, life is uber exciting – when I’m bird and squirrel watching.
