It's been a fairly quiet winter at the bird feeder. Just the usual species are visiting, nothing exciting...... until today when Mr. Red Squirrel showed up to tantalize Ginger and Scamp. I always know something's going on outside when the cats start going wild, running from the family room windows to the deck door, back and forth, tails swishing rapidly. Grey squirrels are an everyday sighting, but this sassy little red squirrel... Well! He got more attention! And he got MY attention when he jumped onto the suet balls and started chewing... Little varmint! The suet has now been moved to a longer hanger, further out from the tree trunk... So now we'll watch to see if he can get to it. Take that, Mr. Red!!
