squirrel treat

In my ongoing efforts to provide food for the birds in our backyard, I also have to deal with unscrupulous squirrels. After getting nowhere with simply tossing the peanuts on the ground, last week I crafted a peanut feeder from the bottom of a plastic juice container. I'm so pleased to see that the squirrels are catching on.

We see mostly black squirrels here in our corner of Ontario but the occasional red squirrel can be seen running along our fence with it's bushy tail floating behind him.


  1. No more red pepper for the squirrels?

  2. Didn't bother them at all, they gobbled the seeds anyway.


I enjoy reading your comments and try to reply as much as I can. Thanks for reading here.
