At one point this afternoon I counted seven black squirrels in our front yard and one squirrel shinnied down our hanging bird feeder three times in about as many minutes. That was it. Despite my total abhorrence to cold winter weather I headed outside and began gathering together a few things like another plastic garbage can lid, a small plastic bird feeder lid, some speaker wire, and a few metal clamps. I set up a couple ladders, took down the old hanging wire set-up, and spent nearly half an hour in our metal shed fumbling around with cold stiff fingers trying to get my new defense system tied together. Eventually, I had things sort of assembled and managed to even get it hung up with the bird feeder hanging on the bottom end. Well at least I got that part right. Will it work?? Not likely, but that's the way it is when one is dealing with an army of squirrels. And besides, I don't have a good track record when it comes to doing things like this. And as far as the Squirrels go, I've got nobody to blame but myself for those little antagonizers because I'm the guy who puts out corn every day to feed the pesky little devils. In fact, I saw a couple cars going by our place kinda slow today and when I looked closer, they were dropping squirrels off right at the end of our driveway. Well, at least I think they were.........
