I decided to get a bird feeder. Simple enough, right? I got the feeder ($4), some special expensive seed, and the pole. I stick the pole in the ground, fill the feeder and put it on the pole. Then I waited. And waited. For 8 days I waited, and nothing. Not even a fly by.
I called my dad and fussed about how the birds hate my feeder. I mean, how hard is it to feed a bird? So, Dad comes by and says that my bird feeder is the problem, that it doesn’t look like a bird feeder. Huh? Do birds know how bird feeders look? Who teaches them what a “proper” bird feeder looks like?
So I send my dad to the store and he comes back with a new ($20) bird feeder. We fill it up and hang it on the pole. I wait about 3 days, and guess what?
And they ate!!
And they even got into a little bird squabble.
And then, . . . HE came!
And HE ate, A LOT!!!!
And although I did like to watch his persistant attempts at stealing my expensive bird seed,
I also liked it when he failed!!
Pig squirrel eats too much!!
So apparently I have snob birds. They don’t like $4 walmart feeders. They only like $20 Home Depot feeders (I should have known).
But, now I have all my pretty birds to look at.
Now to come up with a plan to keep pig squirrel away . . .
