We filled up three bird feeders with seed the other day. My wife wanted to attract more birds to the garden and I hoped to get some pictures of them when they came. Since then we haven’t seen a single bird come to the feeders, but we have seen lots of squirrels, so many in fact that that they’ve completely cleaned out the bird feeders.
I caught this one on top of one of the brackets holding a bird feeder. He must have been disappointed because one of his brothers (or maybe him himself) had knocked the feeder off the bracket yesterday – and spilled all of the seeds onto the ground.
This didn’t seem to bother him much though. He just stretched out to sun himself for a while.
