Does this look...

...like a Wild Bird to you? Not to me either! I took all the feeders down yesterday, washed them out really well, let them dry off, and this morning I refilled them all. Didn't take more than 10 minutes for the squirrel to climb up and inside to start eating. The cardinals can't eat from the squirrel-proof feeders as they don't fit inside the outer cage, so I have this open one for them. Tom tried to help by opening the front door to make noise & the squirrel leapt from the feeder and went up the tree. A few minutes later it was back, so Tom opened the door again, but this time the squirrel stared at him to see what he'd do next, so Tom stepped out onto the porch and off it went. The third time when Tom stepped onto the porch it brazenly stayed inside the feeder, eating and watching him, so Tom picked up the hose and doused him! The fourth time I told Tom not to bother, as the squirrel was obviously not deterred; made me think of the informal motto of the U.S. Postal Service: "Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers squirrels from the swift completion of their appointed rounds the eating of seeds"!  LOL.
