Feeding the Squirrels

away from the bird feeder

When we had the big snow storm and over 50cm came down our back deck was impossible to walk on and I couldn’t make my way to the bird feeder so I put seed on a plate and placed it on top of the snow as far away from the door as my arms would reach. I was hoping that the birds would see it and fly onto the plate. In fact, it was the grey squirrel who found the plate first and with some difficulty made his way over the deep snow and had quite the feast.

    • I think on these ultra cold days any food is greatly appreciated. Ever since I put out the feeder last spring the squirrels have been enjoying the seeds that fall onto the ground. Not sure I should keep making the accessibility of food this easy.
