NO, you may NOT handle my nuts! I put them out for the squirrels.
I like watching squirrels. The are so much fun to see scampering about the trees, bouncing from limb to limb (missing only once in a great while), and running along powerlines without the least bit of effort. At least, not any effort that we can see. While they are fun to watch, they are thieving and destructive little critters.
You put out birdseed in the bird feeders and these furry bandits find all sorts of ways to empty them. One thing you can figure out over time, there’s no such thing as a squirrel-proof bird feeder. These squirrels are amazing acrobats that make me cringe by their contortions.
But, for the record, I say to the squirrels….Keep away from my nuts!
