Spurned By Avians, Shunned By Acrobatic Rodents


This is the Luxury Bird Feeder Girly of Whirly and I purchased last weekend to help all the neighbourhood wildlife eke out the misery over Christmas.

That’s right — half a coconut shell packed with compacted Alpen two years past its sell-by date.

To be honest, we might as well have stuffed a load of polystyrene packing blobbules in a Nazi stormtrooper’s helmet and hung it up on a gallows.

Not a peck, not a scratch, not a chip of squirrel machete.

All my base are belong to Sweet Fanny Adams, it seems.

You and we together, it seems. No different here.
Have a great Christmas!- even if the birds cannot.

Thinks- how are the birds meant to get to the feast's vertical plane? Can't see any footholds - maybe it should have been supplied with avian crampons...

I daren't put food out for the birds - we try to discourage them. Otherwise we're just setting up fast food for Bonnie.

Maybe they prefer Honey Nut Cheerios instead?

:-) Take care

Truly, 'tis a wasteland here at the moment.

But that's life after the X Factor.

Jinksy
The evolutionary instruction manual for birds is so at odds with that of the species hurling it bread at random I'm surprised lizards or insects don't rule the roost, let alone chickens.

Sarah
But yes, avian crampons is good...

Sadly for Geoff's mauling reputation, they queue up to mock...

I wouldn't put it past them, the devious buggers.
