The Day of Hurricane Irene
(1) Day after we Purchased this feeder
Obviously, not "squirrel-proof"
Those little birds look a little nervous watching the hurricane clouds.ReplyDelete
Whose idea was it to let squirrels on the ark? They are such a nuisance!ReplyDelete
I hope you got through Irene okay!ReplyDelete
I love your bird photos. We have wonderful bird feeders in our backyard... with no bird food. One of our dogs escapes through the rod iron fence so we had to put chicken wire around the bottom to keep her safe. The downside... critters come in but can't get out in time and my dogs kill/eat, throw up 'stuff'. ICK!ReplyDelete
I enjoy squirrels :)
Have a wonderful weekend!
Yes, those birds look poised for flight. And they seem to be paying attention.ReplyDelete
Thanks for sharing both photos. I think squirrels are cute...until they start doing damage!
Here's MY SATURDAY SNAPSHOT
Those two little birdies are really cute. I'd be a bit concerned, too, watching the clouds come my way.ReplyDelete
Yes, those squirrels eat through plastic! Nice photos.ReplyDelete
We've yet to find a squirrel proof feeder. I feel bad for all the animals that have to weather those storms outside.ReplyDelete
The dark sky looks so much more ominous with the cautious birds in the foreground. Great photo. Here's My Saturday SnapshotReplyDelete
I hope you got through the hurrican in one piece. You'd better squirrel proof that feeder :-)ReplyDelete
Nope, definitely not squirrel-proof! I do have to agree with Kaye. Those little fur-buggers are such nuisances!ReplyDelete
Poor little birdies! I haven't done birdfeeders before, so I haven't had to deal with squirrels but I've heard they're a pain.ReplyDelete
The squirrels are always trying to get at our bird feeders so we use thistle socks, which they can't eat fromReplyDelete
Cheeky little squirrel!ReplyDelete
have a good weekend
At my place, nothing seems squirrel proof. Great pics!ReplyDelete
Here is my Saturday Snapshot post!
Those are great pics...and the birds do appear pretty ruffled!!ReplyDelete
Squirrels are so tricky!!
I think squirrels delight in eating new feeders! Poor little birdies look ready to flee. I was wondering where they went during the hurricane.ReplyDelete
I have found one feeder that is sturdy and has survived squirrels. It's the Audubon Going Green Tube Feeder.
Picture here: http://backyardbirdwatcher.com/product5876.html#5876
I have this feeder and it's my favorite.
I died when I saw your picture of the "squirrel-proof" feeder -- they are evil geniuses!ReplyDelete
what cute birds!ReplyDelete
Those poor little birds. I am always fascinated by how they survive the wind and the rain.ReplyDelete
That is a lovely little pictures of the birds. Amazing to me that animals so small can survive something as big and terrible as a hurricane!ReplyDelete
Poor little birds, hope they made out okay in the storm.ReplyDelete
Wonder if the birds knew what was coming?ReplyDelete
Lovely photos :)
Love the birds! They do seem to be keeping an eye on things.ReplyDelete
Thanks for stopping by!
You and your birds!! : )ReplyDelete
And it is soooo hard to find a squirrel-proof feeder. The key is getting a good baffle to put UNDER the feeder … and not locating near a place where they can jump on top of it.
What a beautiful yard you have!ReplyDelete
Those little feathers look a bit ruffled, don't they? Cute pic, though!ReplyDelete
The little birds appeared ruffled as if still suffering from leftover shock. Yikes, squirrels did a number on that feeder. tsk. ☺ReplyDelete
Those really are great pictures!ReplyDelete
Is there such a thing as squirrel proof?ReplyDelete
thanks for stopping byReplyDelete
love your birds, I don't do bird feeders so have no advice about the squirrels but I've seen some strange contraptions that they've been able to get passed so I wish you good luck
Squirrels are so ingenious, aren't they. You have to respect their cleverness, even when it is a bit of a pain! Great shots, Diane.ReplyDelete
Lovely photos, before and after Irene. Cute little birds.ReplyDelete
Hope everyone around there made it through Irene OK, squirrels and birds included. We live in a high-rise and aren't allowed to have bird-feeders on the balconies, but I sometimes leave secret treats!ReplyDelete
Oh I love the one with the little birds. So pretty. Great shot.ReplyDelete
Thanks for visiting my blog :)
