Birds vs a squirrel
I'm feeding many birds and one squirrel in the front yard of the apt building. I've heard too many stories of human trying to keep squirrels out of bird feeders, and the squirrel always wins, so I don't mind feeding one squirrel. So far.
My question is, if I feed him his own food, is he likely to leave the bird food alone, or to eat that too?
In the couple of days I've been observing this little drama, the squirrel seems to eat continuously.
well I guess I'll find out, cuz that is what I'm going to do.
Wondered what others' experience is.
BTW, I'm not going to try to outsmart the squirrel with an expensive bird feeder which is supposed to be squirrel-proof. I tried one, and it wasn't. Nor am I very good at building things. Besides I like the little fellow, and he deserves to eat too.
