Hot Pepper Suet - Christmas Birding Haul
Yesterday, I posted the first of a few birding related Christmas presents that the kids gifted to me this Christmas and today comes the next in the line: a Hot Pepper Suet. Yeah! Hot Pepper.
Turns out, birds don't have taste buds? But squirrels do. At least that's what this story on Sciencing.com has to say. As I mentioned in the post about the Christmas bird bell yesterday, we have squirrels like everybody else. And they go after everything they can, including our suet cage.
My hope here is to run a few squirrel-proof suets and hopefully *teach* the squirrels to buzz off? They have short memories, I'm guessing, so who knows if it will work?!?
