Creating this bird feeder out of a used water bottle was a labor of love. Besides I told myself not only was I feeding my fine feathered friends but doing a small part in saving our earth by recycling.
I was delighted when just one day later I stepped outside and saw how much had been eaten out of the once full bottle. As I peeked through my living room window to see if I could capture some birds with my camera I noticed the dowel was missing.
I searched the snow under the tree and found it. What kind of prints are these?
I went back inside to watch.
Silly me, I thought just because I made the opening small that it would make the bird seeds inaccessible to all but the
birds. This little red pawed rascal was caught "red handed"! He tipped the bottle to one side and poured the seeds into his mouth. I don't know whose mouth was open wider, his or mine!
After he had pulled on the bottle and gotten all the seeds from it he flung it to the ground and I went outside to retrieve it. I'm not sure if I should put it back outside or not. Plastic may not be a good diet for a squirrel. For much better pictures of squirrels check out

You will not be disappointed! Take care and God bless!
