If the Robins, one of whom I showed a couple of days ago, have been missed over the summer months, the same can not be said of the Squirrels. We never had much trouble with squirrels stealing the food we put out for the birds until fairly recently. There was just the one who'd come into the garden and hoover up the seeds that had been spilled onto the ground and occasionally look longingly at the peanut feeder high above its head. Then something changed. This summer one of the squirrels leant how to jump onto the nut feeder. So I moved it. It jumped further, got pregnant (several times) and then brought back all of its young to feed too. The feeder is now hanging from a ten foot pole with two anti-squirrel devices (one was not enough) but still they come and plan their next move. Canon EOS 40D
