    All the more reason to stay indoors and curl up with a comic book and a few Milky Bones!

    Chipmunks are ground dwellers. They don’t often climb trees although they are capable of it.

    I put petroleum jelly on the pole holding up the bird feeder so the squirrels couldn’t get back up there. It only took them about a week to figure out they could climb up and not have to wait for a bird to toss out all the “unpopular” birdseed until they found what they wanted. A few weeks ago, I saw a squirrel look at me (I was behind the sunroom window watching the birds and squirrels) and then jump up on the pole and – still watching me – slide down. Then I noticed the feeder was empty. A small group of Starlings (about 10 to 12) had emptied the feeder, and cleaned up all the stray seeds that had been tossed to the ground, in about 2 or 3 hours. “Squirrelly” watched from about 15 feet away while I refilled the feeder. I put some of the “cheep seed” in 3 small piles on the ground near the bottom of the feeder for the squirrels. I have a cardboard divider in the feeder so I can put inexpensive seed in one side and the black oil sunflower seed in the other side. The littlest birds like the cheap stuff and the cardinals like the sunflower seeds.The Starlings must have come back today, because the feeder was about 1/3 to 1/2 filled this morning and it’s empty tonight. It’s 7:40 pm, eastern, and I’m getting quite a bit of “bird cussing” since the brighter birds like to feed in the twilight so that the hawks can’t see them as easily. The last panel reminded me of the squirrel sliding down the bird feeder pole in our own back yard.

    I swear I saw baby frogs raining in my backyard when I was little. I thought they came out of the clouds.
