Squirrelly Nut-Nut

We put out peanuts and peanut butter for the birds in the winter. Woodpeckers love it, so do chickadees and nuthatches.
And so do squirrels. They have yet to score a nut from the feeder but still give it a go from time to time, irrespective of how frustrating it must be for them.

dfLeah - I have squirrels at my feeders ocasionally, too, but they always manage to get a few sunflower seeds before the Princess chases them away. Keeps them coming back for more.

Cute video!

Thanks, dfBag Lady. I'm hoping to get more as the season progresses.

Cute video. Not being allowed feeders here, we don't see a lot of squirrels. I know that we have some, just not many.
