Now our snow is melting slowly, we now have ice and rain, two inches of rain,,, flood warnings out now, more rain to come tonight. January in Michigan.. Two miles from Lake Huron.. not good news.. teh fog is so thick we can barely see the house across the street(fifty feet)
Poor little guys are out eating up our seeds and suet. A family of squirrels at the bottom of my feeder(I made it squirrel proof) and birds covering both sides of it..
DD said that this morning a squirrel had the audacity to attempt to eat off a suet basket I have about one foot from the birdhouse hanging in my red maple tree in the front yard. Every small bird around dive-bombed this guy until he could not stand it and he jumped out of the tree.
Since my feeder is absolutely squirrel-proof(I have never had one on it in eleven years) they are looking long and hard for seeds that fall on the ground after the birds have their fill.
