Who Will Eat Cranberries from the Snowbank?

nutsaboutflowers(2b/3a)March 1, 2012

I bought a bag of fresh cranberries a while back for baking, and forgot about them. They're still quite fresh, just not quite good enough to bake with.

It's too hard to get to the compost pile right now, so I threw them in a pile on the snow bank.

Who's going to eat them ? Birds? Squirrels? Both?

It seems to me they'd be eaten by whoever sees them first, but what do I know ? =:)

If Bohemian Waxwings find them, they might eat them but they like to eat in the trees and not off the ground. Magpies and BlueJays might try them but I don't know if they would eat them.

Something in my yard ate the cranberries I had left over from Christmas. Probably the bunnies or maggies. ??? Or maybe they just buried them in the leaves. :)
