We don't have cute squirrels. Only the grey, fluffy country rats.
I am moving my bird feeder setup today because the squirrels are making a mess of my patio. I suspect we will lose birds for a while. When I tried to move the feeder last year, everyone stopped coming. I was so upset, I put it back, but I cannot stand this greasy suet mess on the patio floor another day.
I saw my first male hummingbird yesterday (ever), and the day before that I saw my first red-breasted grosbeak. And we now have flickers darting around the yard, eating ants.
