Isn't he (or is it she) adoreable?

I would have to say yes except for the fact that he/she is sitting on top of one our bird feeder eating all of the bird’s food. Typically we eat breakfast and dinner on our back porch. Our yard was beautifully landscaped by one of our dear friends Joe Guida from http://www.guidalandscape.com/, we have scattered whine chimes and bird feeders through out the trees so the scene has been set. Until recently, our beautiful Cardinals, Woodpeckers and Blue Jays have not been coming around as often. One morning we discovered the reason. This little creature that we affectionately call botchagaloop.

Those of you have faced the 'feed to squirrels or feed the bird' dilemma please speak up, leave me a comment and let me know if there is a solution that will be a win win for us all.

We had the same problem, which was a BIG problem for me sense I hate squirrels; they remind me of my biggest fears- mice!!! Lowe’s sells a simple device called a squirrel baffle. It is a dome shaped device that you can hang either above or below the bird feeder, depending on how the squirrel is getting to the feeder. We have one and it works perfectly! Why didn’t we think of that???? Jeff said: “Squirrel Please” (say in his high pitched voice. Love you guys- Shannon
