So, with out looking it up on the internet, I thought to just come here & ask.
I thought that Squirrels hibernated ? If that is the case, why were there 2 in my bird feeders yesterday & today ??? My Dh says that they need to eat too (the squirrels) & while this is true, they hid food all fall & my birds did not. Not to mention the fact that squirrels are destructive to my feeders.
But moving on, I have a large feeder with 2 end caps for suet cakes, and then 2 very large pot trays on the ground to accommodate the ground feeders and also to make sure that the cardinals & such have access to sunflower seeds
. It is fun to watch them eat when the squirrels are not around.
My beautiful finch feeder must have somehow taken on water, and the finch seed
got impacted and no matter what I try, I cannot get it cleaned out, so the finches are having to make do with what they can get out of the wild feeders. My next trip to town I will be buying a new finch feeder for them.
