Couldn't figure out why we were going through so much bird seed....

  1. Staked the feeder out!






    Try it this way (I can't understand whyit is so darned difficult to post a photo on this site - I must be too old to learn new tricks since I have been shown a dozen times how to do it and it never works when I try it!)[email protected]/538215003[email protected]/538215007[email protected]/538215009[email protected]/538215011[email protected]/538215015

    You will notice that his cheeks are a lot more stuffed when he exits that they were when he goes in. This persistent critter must be stashing away 5 lbs of seed in his secret lair. Gonna be one fat little rodent this winter!

    I'm an old dog also. Took me several attempts and key was the formatting of the url from the other site. Not sure of the 'rules' in formatting that are needed but I can tell you that in flickr, you cannot copy the url from the web address box at the top of the page. Instead, go to flickrs' "All Sizes" view and there's a box near the bottom which says "Grab the Photo's URL". This is formatted properly.
    Nice pics, by the way.
  4. Well Dave - I shall try it again, but you know quite well the old adage about "old dogs" and "new tricks"........
  5. Absolutely adorable! I couldn't help but chuckle at this sequence! Cute little critters but yep, they can put a cramp in the birdseed budget! That's why I have separate feeders for the squirrels!

    Rick I had the same problem several years ago (way before digital). I would fill the feeder (tube type) in the evening and the next morning it would be empty. I thought maybe racoons. Came home one evening and decided to take a peek in the back. What I saw was a doe with 3 fawns in the back. She would hit the feeder with her nose and the seeds would fall then the fawns would eat the seeds. I have an old picture I will try and find and scan to post.
