Squirrel bent on destruction

While my husband is out of town, he stored the bird food outside in plastic bins to make it easier for me to feed the birds. A squirrel has–uh oh!–taken an interest in them. to keep the snow off, I have them covered with a drop cloth, which is held down by paint cans. The drop cloth is now full of holes the size of squirrel claws and teeth. He hasn’t started chewing on the bins yet that I’ve seen, but it won’t be long. I’m going to have to find somewhere else to store them.

There’s plenty of bird seed on the ground that he could eat, but … he’s a squirrel. The best I might call him is “scoundrel.” The worst is unprintable.

What Squirrel Baffle?

Baffling squirrels is … possible–IF you keep every jumping-off-point to a feeder at least ten feet away. The trick is to know what they might jump from. Flimsy shrubbery will do for these trapeze artists. Do what you can to frustrate them, but also enjoy them as they rise to the challenge.

My movies aren’t always about birds, just mostly. You can see all of my films on my YouTube channel: Jo Alwood
