This one was pulled off in broad daylight.
One of our resident red squirrels had his head inside the bird feeder when we first saw him.
He had gone to a lot of trouble to pull off this larceny.
He climbed a 12 foot "squirrel-proof" pole,
negotiated two "squirrel-proof" baffles,
twisted off a "squirrel-proof" lid,
and helped himself to a treasure trove of sunflower seeds.
Ever watch a caper movie and find your self rooting for the thief?
We watched this creature with a certain grudging admiration
while he cleaned out the vault and dismounted.
Now there's one more obstacle on the feeder lid,
and we'd like to think that's the end of the story.
What are the chances?
Ok, there's not a bird here,
but I'm hoping a bird cage qualifies me
to link with Wild Bird Wednesday.
