The other day I mentioned the large quantity of birdseed we go through in our backyard feeder. This stuff comes in large sacks that are not easy to wrangle or use to fill the feeder, etc., so along the way I started storing it in these large plastic jugs that originally held pretzel rods, and stashing the jugs under a storage bench on the deck. Recently when cleaning up, I noticed that this storage bench is not actually fully enclosed, as the back of it is open to the underside of the deck. I found it amusing that the squirrels were still frustrating themselves on our still squirrel-proof feeder while a very accessible smorgasbord was just a couple of feet away, but I also knew that they would figure things out eventually. Well eventually came today, as I found chew-marks all over the lids of the jugs, so I had to move them back indoors. Sadly for the squirrels, they did not actually make it into the seed before their efforts were discovered... I imagined they would have themselves at least one amazing feast at my expense once they discovered this treasure trove, but they missed out.
