I feed the local birds
with cayenne laced suet
a feeder full of thistle seed.
Nothing a squirrel would ever touch
aside from the fact I have two terriers
The condo assoc. is adamant about not feeding the local wildlife and attracting vermin, (ie: rats, feral cats, and R.O.U.S.es).
The neighbors, (most of them), leave out unshelled peanuts, and the local squirrel population, regularly make the rounds.
the squirrels should know
I don't feed them!I opened the sliding door to take the pictures . . .
I slammed the door shut
when he came across the deck,
and to within a foot of the doorway
with NO intention of stopping.
at home, close to the house I feed birds only,
further out the yard I feed the squirrels, turkeys,
and whatever else wanders by.
