There is no time like the present, so today when refilling the bird feeders I took the opportunity to try and set them up in a less squirrel friendly way. I just go through the seed too fast when they tip it over; the feeders are meant to be a bird feeders, not bird, squirrel, bunny feeders (the bunnies love to scavenge beneath).
It involved pruning back a bunch of the dead branches at the base of the tall spruce in the back. Who says you can not garden in the winter?
I was outside at a balmy -9 for a few hours (before and after pics to follow another day) and I just want to state for the record what a nice way it was to spend the afternoon outside in Winnipeg, in January.
