How is your day going? I am shaking my fist and cursing out the fucking squirrels.
I have a tray feeder mounted on my back deck rail. It’s a tray feeder – the squirrels chow down there constantly. I can’t keep them from destroying hanging feeders so I just set out a tray feeder. Good enough, the squirrels eat their fill and the birds enjoy the rest.
The little assholes chewed through the metal screen that is the bottom part of the tray (so it drains). I’ve had that feeder out for a little over a year and this morning I look out the window and it’s ruined. And not just a little hole. No no. Those fuckers chewed open a section that is the size of my hand. There were little segments of metal wire all over the rail.
I got nothing. We’re getting freezing rain tomorrow and Thursday so I’m not getting a new feeder until the weekend. Good job squirrels, you’ve just destroyed your food source!
