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.

I had one baby get in my dog food bag inside my cabin. Wasn't sure how it found its way in, but it was in heaven and I felt mean taking it out. I jammed a few more openings with wood and caulk and never saw my freeloader friend again.
