Good Lord its cold outside tonight! Last week we were blessed with a big beautiful moon. I’d wake up everynight around 2 am and the moon-light was so bright.

I did’nt fill the “regular” feeder this morning. I did however fill the other bird feeder that the squirels have’nt become aware of…yet.

We’re not sure if they were trying to knock it down or just trying to rattle the bird feeder with the hopes that some trapped seed may get knocked loose then be theirs for the taking….they ceertainly are funny little creatures to watch.
