He’s Mocking Me
My enthusiasm over the victory over the squirrel has diminished. He’s back, and I do believe he’s mocking me.
Adding cayenne to my bird seed this weekend kept the squirrel out of my feeder for much of Saturday.
Yet, here he is the next day, giving me the eye, nibbling away at my cayenne laced bird seed.
He’s definitely showing off, as if to say, “Yeah, what are you going to to about it?”
Despite his determination to beat me, he wasn’t totally immune to the hot.
Apparently, there’s nothing like a mouthful of snow to cleanse your palate before heading back to the feeder.
