For the last few weeks, the weather has been warming up, the snow has been melting, and Spring has slowly been making herself felt. Animals have become more active, waking up after a long winter...
...including my old enemy,
So yesterday evening I moved a few things around in the backyard and was delighted to finally see a different sight when I looked out the window this morning:
|What the...?! |
After it finally got over its shock, the squirrel sprung into action. It tried its best to get past the squirrel baffle, but with no luck.
It started to get frantic, running up the greenhouse and every tree within a ten yard radius, trying to figure out if there was anyway to reach the beloved treasure trove of sunflower seeds. Nothing worked.
|Spicy suet! I don't want this!|
The squirrel could climb the nearby pole to the suet feeder, which was full of spicy suet that squirrels hate, but it still couldn't get to the desired sunflower seed bird feeder.
Victory was mine.
I don't know if I should celebrate too loudly, though. As I was taking pictures of my enemy's failure in order to mock it on the internet, the squirrel turned and gave me this look.
I'm just a little bit afraid.
