Ever hear someone talking about "eating like a bird"? The assumption is that birds don't eat very much. How else do birds stay "light as a feather"?
Well, I'm here to tell ya that the birds who frequent my backyard eat like pigs! I am constantly filling the feeders with seed and suet and they make quick work of consuming it all.
As much as the birds eat, the squirrels eat even more! They eat the bird food and chow down on ear after ear of the corn that I put out for them. Well, the last thing I want on my conscience is a dray of fat squirrels! From here on out, the squirrels are going to have to work for their dinner.
As you can see in the video below, the early results are good!
