Birds Going Squirrel-y

Over the weekend I was wanting some popcorn and found an old bagful in the pantry and popped some. It was awful but I thought the squirrels might go for it. I set it out on the deck with a handful of unpopped kernels. They liked it! Then it rained the other day, and yet there was one of them scooping his little paw in there and eating kernels. When he left we brought the bowl in and dumped it. Now those same little rascals had dug through my birdfeeder spewing seed everywhere just to get to the sunflower seeds, totally emptying it in a matter of days. Hmm . . . what to do? Out of birds seed . . . bagful of of useless popcorn kernels . . . Fill the birdfeeder with popcorn! Well, it seemed like a good idea at the time, until shortly thereafter Brian noticed the birds were walking in circles around the feeder trying to find which side had some seed for them. We had a good laugh over that one!
