My social networking experiment

As some of you know, or may not!!!, I have quite a menagerie of critters around and on my property. These could be birds of all types, including raptors, skunks, coons, feral cats, snakes, etc. To be socially responsible, I do my best to feed them (except for the feral cats!). Lately the fat lazy little squirrels have just gotten wayyy too slovenly and complacent with the bird food and the cobs of corn.



I've decided to put a little ingenuity and exercise into their daily feeding habits. If they want to eat......they will have to JUMP for it!!! :)



We'll see how this plays out, as it's right outside my office window, I should be able to get some decent pics, once the little attic rats figure it out ;D

it's been my personal experience that native critters are very hard to out smart, coerce, round up, train, get to do what you want them to do, get them not to do what you do not want them to do. They win every time
