The city squirrels here will eat just about anything. But what they really want is bird seed!
I thought I was safe storing my seed in a plastic trash can.
You can see they really tried to get the lid off! Goes to show what kind of taste they have, I can't imagine what the plastic tastes like but I'm sure it's not very good.
I can't really keep the seed inside the house. Old houses = mouses in the winter!
Today I went and bought a metal can.... last year they chewed the metal rings off my other beautiful birdfeeder! We'll see what happens next....
