Squirrels and Birds and Pride and Prejudice–Oh My!

 I recently filled our squirrel-resistant bird feeder to entice the local overwintering bird population to provide bird-watching opportunities.

I noticed the seed level was going down by a couple of inches a day–too fast for birds, unless huge flocks were constantly ordering take out.

When I let our dog out for a bathroom break one morning, I saw a squirrel hanging upside down on the cage that surrounded the birdfeeder. Either the cage isn’t very squirrel-resistant, or our squirrels are irresistible.

Anyway, the above video my teenaged son and I made captures what went through my mind afterward (although I don’t, indeed, hate squirrels).

No squirrels were harmed (emotionally, physically, or in any other way) during the creation of this video clip.
