So I've been noticing this week that the bird seed is getting completely eaten - which is fine, I don't mind that. I don't mind that all the seed gets eaten in the platform and upcycled feeders - the squirrels have easy access, and I really don't care if they eat some of the seed; they tend to leave the safflower and really the squirrels don't come by until the afternoon anyway. What I do care about is that I filled up the tube feeder this morning and by the time I came home it was completely empty. Like I never even touched it. I'm very confused, I didn't think the squirrels were getting to it, but maybe they are? But then, since the feeder is cheap plastic, I would have figured that they would have just chewed through the feeder instead of methodically going through the little feed holes at the bottom...
Oh the confusion.
I foresee me sitting by the window all day on Sunday looking for the culprit.
I can't do it tomorrow though because there's things to be done - specifically a birding seminar, the East Austin Garden Fare and the Wildflower Center plant sale.
