Be neighborly


     After nearly a month of no activity at my new bird feeders, I finally saw some.  It’s not exactly what I anticipated but I guess even the squirrels need to eat on a cold, snowy winter’s day.

This little guy (or gal) has been setting off my alarm on the steps all summer, coming up onto the deck.  Now he seems to have filled out nicely and put on his winter pouch.

He also was eating the food, not packing it away, so he was saying, ‘Hey, I’m hungry!’

I’ve also seen a woodpecker and some other small birds, so the word has gotten out about the ‘goodies’ on the deck.

Although I know squirrels can be destructive, I feel as if this one wants and needs a little TLC.

So for the first winter in our ‘new’ home, I’m offering sustenance to a ‘neighbor.’

Neighbors come in all shapes and sizes…and it really is good to be neighborly.
