Feed the Birds

Something keeps knocking
the bird feeders down
and spilling the seed
all over the ground.
It might be a squirrel
so just in case
I’ve re-hung the fat-balls
in a different place!

One of the feeders was actually broken, so I bought a new and better quality one today, filled it with seed, went to hang it up but dropped it – and guess what; it’s broken!

    After years of having to forgo a feeder…as I had a flock of nasty grey geese grazing…I have been able to put up a feeder again. But it doesn’t matter where…the squirrels always find it. I have it hanging from a long ‘arm’ and sprayed the arm with cooking spray…oiled it down so to speak. But that only worked for a short while. I think we are stuck with the squirrels if we also want the birds. 🙂

    I love the idea of bird feeders, but alas, have too many squirrels, and our porch cats … not good mixes for the birds. Although, I have thought of putting a feeder in the back yard … do not think the dogs would bother them! Hmmm, something to ponder!! 😀

      I have a cat but she doesn’t seem to bother the birds – they stay out of reach! The pigeons do feed on the ground at times but are too big for her to tackle.

    I do believe it is a bit of…who gets there first…and squirrels can be a dilemma for birds and bird feeders. Hope it works out in another place.

      So far so good – but I’m not sure the birds have found them yet either! Or perhaps there are plenty of berries for them to eat.
