darn tree-rats

My love for birds has deepened in recent months. Consequently, my contempt for squirrels has increased twofold.

The other day, Ryan helped me trim some low-hanging branches off the arborvitae in order to prevent the squirrels from lowering themselves onto the bird feeder, stuffing themselves into the bowl of seed and scaring the birds away.

Those beady-eyed little buggers responded with an angry act of retaliation:

Those god-damned squirrels! We'll foil them yet.

I know! squirrels are always a problem where there is bird seed. I live on the third floor of an apartment building and those damn squirrels would climb up balcony to balcony just to get to the seed or dish of water.

The other problem, at least out this, way is that the squirrels are not afraid of humans, you practically have to run the things down to get them to shoo.

Good luck.
