Anyone know of a way to discourage squirrels from feeders? I figured we had it made with our backyard squirrel deterrent but these squirrels aren't dumb bunnies. BUNNIES. That is another blog come spring. Back to the squirrels. We now have one that has found the square suet feeder on the south side. I can not think of anyway to stop him, other then bringing the feeder in. But the woodpeckers would not be happy with that. Any thoughts?
And to top it all off, the Cooper Hawk showed up today. He usually shows up every January when the snow cover keeps him from finding food. His favorite meal consists of small birds found at feeders. I guess he just gets tired of the work involved with hunting in the winter. Haven't seen a bird all afternoon even tho he left awhile ago. Must be in hiding.
