…..But some critters duked it out over my bird feeder. I looked out to my bird feeder this morning and it was gone. I went outside and it had fallen, but not just fallen, it was brutalized. Uprooted from its very sturdy position with metal hooks holding it down and a cement block keeping it plumb.
The two feeder tubes were empty and one was as 20 feet away halfway down the yard.
This is the first time I’ve had this happen. The guilty party had to be bigger than a squirrel but what would carry a feeder tube a distance then eat all the seeds?? A hawk? I don’t think so. A fox?
I need more seed anyway so I’ll right the feeder stand and refill because I have had lots of birds come even though it’s springtime and birds should be able to eat without the supplemental seed.
Yesterday the right hand side tube was full and the red bellied woodpecker was enjoying a snack. Today, not a seed in sight. Not even a mess left behind. Deer maybe?
