Oh dear, distractions abound. First there’s the kitten-cam which my sister sent me last week that has been running on my computer for the last 4 days. Be warned, it’s addictive. Then there’s the bird feeder, not to mention the paper I’m supposed to be writing for class.
One evening last week, I filled the feeder which I do regularly because it empties within two days. So it was very much to my surprise when it was empty the next morning. As far as I am aware, feeder birds and squirrels are diurnal. So while things are occasionally squirrelly here, I can’t hold the squirrels responsible. However as I was diligently typing away on my paper, I caught sight of something moving the feeder. Running to the window, I discovered a new suspect!
Three deer stopped in for a bit of a snack. They were more off-put by my sudden appearance at the window than the thumping on the glass or Rumpelstiltskin behavior that followed.
Sis has taken to calling the feeder “the water cooler”. I think it’s been christened. Can’t wait to see who shows up next? Raccoons? Bears? Oh my!
