A Freeloader at the Feeder
When I opened the blinds this morning this is who I saw chowing down on the sunflower seeds on my platform feeder. I bought this feeder two weeks ago when I relocated my other feeder off the porch to cut down on the mess the house finches made tossing seeds to and fro. I expected a squirrel or two,but I think the porch cats have deterred them.
Nothing deters opossums. They ignore cats. And they will eat almost anything.
Well- almost anything. I brought some mixed carrots and peas home from my night dinner tray at the prison clinic, and nothing would touch them.
