Day 4 word prompt for Creativity Boot Camp. This one was difficult and requires some explanation, but it’s the best I could come up with. The squirrels destroyed my old bird feeder so all the feed would spill out on the ground. So I bought this new feeder that is supposed to be “squirrel-proof”. Basically if anything heavy tries to jump on the feeder the metal cage-y part on the outside slides down and covers the holes so they can’t get to the seed. See what I did there? 🙂
Anyway, it actually works, but I’ve also noticed a definite lack of birds, too. So either they’re scared of trying to perch on it or they try and they’re too heavy for it. Not sure, but I’m sad about not seeing as many birds as before so I may have to find another feeder. Why is this so complicated!?!
