Have those Iowa Rid-a-Rats #1 and #2 found their way to the Carolinas? Rocky the Squirrel has enjoyed a piepan of birdseed this winter with the company of Carolina Wrens, Tufted Titmice, Snowbirds and Chicadees and one Dove named "Dove".
Tuesday morning found two big Rats grazing beside Rocky along with three additional Squirrels. Oh Rats. Rocky lost her most prized possesion, her piepan of seed. I can see her now sitting next to its spot on the deck railing shaking her tail and looking toward the kitchen window. She loved it so, but it had to go.
A Suet feeder hangs from the wire that's strung between the big shed and a pine tree. Today a very exotic looking gold dome-shaped bird feeder was added next to it. A circular perch hangs below the port holes that have a little roof to keep the rain away. It's very light weight. nice.
Holy Cow, a look out the window to see which bird found it first finds China the neighbors tiny Red Dog laying under it. Ha! Who would of guessed,,a Chinabird.
