    Regrettably we dont have any Hummingbirds in the UK. Squirrels might like a swim, perhaps.

    What I can't be having fun whilst needling someone's pride with the flipside at the same time?

    Suet (or animal fat) is another good food source that can be used to attract birds to your yard. It's a high energy food source that will attract woodpeckers, titmice, nuthatches, and other birds.

    True, unfortunately you have to take the bad with the good. Keep a shotgun and a hunting dog handy.

    I prefer a slingshot and dog food pellets for pelting squirrels. I have bad aim anyway....

    Squirrels are good where I live - we have the cute little red ones, and chimpmunks. As long as we have seeds / nuts out they things alone. Good thing because I have tomatoes, peppers and cukes growing... for our enjoyment, not theirs!
