When I lived in Ohio for a few years, we had tons of hummingbirds flitting about.
Why then is it so difficult to attract birds to my feeder?
Well, we get birds but not many of the cute, colorful ones.
Instead, we get plenty of screeching black crows and bandit squirrels.
Those cute, colorful birds don’t stand a chance.
Not to mention the chipmunks who stuff their cheeks with my tomatoes and run off in glee.
There I sit, tomato less, wondering what I’ll put in my salad.
I’ll be waiting for a squirrel to attack this bird feeder where the seeds will spill onto the ground …
giving those chipmunks a little snack before the tomatoes sprout.
P.S. I discovered the absolute best way to hang my bundt pan bird feeder.
Well, it was actually my hubs idea – wrap twine around a tennis ball and put underneath the pan – bring the two ends of twine through the top and tie onto the tree!
I didn’t just marry him for his studly good looks after all.
P.S. Anyone know how to get the chipmunks to take a vacation from my yard? (for the sake of my salads)
