It took absolutely forever to upload these pictures so when I started this post, it was squirrels - 1...human...0, as you can see in the picture to the left. Turns out the plastic dome does have a job...it keeps some of the rain off the feeder. Not the original purpose, but at least it's good for something.
When I was out and about this morning, going from hardware store to hardware store, I found the "Big Ol' Kob" that you can sort of see in the picture below...it's for squirrels. The directions suggested that I put some peanut butter on the kob to attract the squirrels, which I did, and it worked!!! Now the squirrels are chewing on the kob instead of flying through the air to reach the bird seed. This has been quite a learning process for me. I
had no idea what I was going to go through when I decided to get a bird feeder. Some of you are probably laughing at me out there, and that's ok, because I'm on a bird feeder learning curve and it's been rather steep.
I'd like to say more but I have to get ready to go to a friends for dinner tonight. I offered to fix a sweet potato dish and I need to get started on it.
The format for this post is really screwy and I don't have time to mess with it. Sorry it looks so weird.
More sunshine, pleeeeeeease!!
