I know you are not suppose to use red hummingbird syrup but I made a mistake and bought one package. It is almost gone. I saw two squirrels in recent days; one a grey squirrel and one a black squirrel./ I've warned these critters several times to stay away from my feeders. They're just like kids. They don't listen. So.....I got out my pellet gun. I tried scaring them after I warned them, but no they wouldn't listen. I shot at the squirrel as he dangled upside down on the finchbag. Only scared him off for a day.
So another day goes by and bamb... the hummingbird feeder is down and drained and apart. I do enjoy my feeders. I have a cardinal, two finches, and a wood pecker feeding right now. A humingbird just appeared as I write this. So it came down to this.....the squirrel vs landlord in an all out battle.
I better warn the squirrel that I have his cousin in my freezer.
