Squirrels and chipmunks seem to think bird feeders are your way of offering them a tasty treat - and can go to great lengths to get at your birdseed. This little chipmunk managed to remove the cover to my squirrel proof feeder and dive inside for a delicious treat of nuts and berries. Unfortunately, once inside, he wasn't able to escape (don't worry, after taking a few pictures we released him unharmed.)
If you, like me, enjoy all wildlife and wouldn't dream of harming squirrels and chipmunks - but want to keep them out of your bird feeders, there are some tricks to repelling squirrels you can try.
Until Next Time . . . HAPPY GARDENING!
