So I bought a cute little seed bell for my bird friends. My husband helped me hang it, then the next day we found it on the ground. What happened?
See that pinkish/red? What the heck?
Then we found blood on some leaves.
Ouch - this gave me the heebie jeebies, did I transfer them to you?
Then we looked up and discovered what happened to the seed bell. It had been in the netting. Mr Squirrel thought he would like some and in his eagerness he chewed through the net, knocking down the bell, and apparently leaving behind a chunk of tail. Ewwww!
I feel kind of bad for the squirrel, I have not yet figured out which squirrel is missing a chunk of tail. . .but I wonder, if I hang up another bell, will he be back? Did he learn anything at all?
