Do you see
All is not normal at the feeder?
See the little paw just below the roof.
Well, I suppose it is normal here
where birds and squirrels and raccoons
breakfast at the feeders regularly.
With his tummy squished between glass and roof
he still eats!
He's a red squirrel and they're small.
Visitors often mistake them for chipmunks.
The large grey squirrels have not yet arrived
in our neck of the woods.
If we lived in town we would have another bird feed raider.
Some deer there have learnt to get their long tongues
into bird feeders
and scoop out the seeds.
Those who haven't mastered that skill yet
then nibble at whatever falls to the ground.
