Some people love them,
others hate them. I am of the ones who like squirrels. I watch and enjoy
their fascinating behavior. Of course, they do visit birdfeeders and
this annoys people. Who would not enjoy a free meal? Maybe they assume
that the feeder was put there for their use. They also dig up bulbs. I
have found tulips in my garden I never planted.
For peace of mind, I got a metal squirrel-proof feeder with a squirrel guard. Some adventurous squirrels still try to scale it, but give up soon. It seems too much trouble for a few sunflower seeds.
Let us enjoy all wildlife while we still have it.
