I bought a new-to-me kind of bird feeder the other day. It is especially for finches, so it has tiny perches and tiny holes for them to put their tiny beaks in to get out the tiny seeds.
We hung it on a limb outside the front door so that I could see it from my sewing table. This morning when I stood there, I saw it. On the ground.
It was standing up with the rope neatly swirled around it. When I looked up, I saw that the baling twine was frayed. Lots of moss with a string of twine in the center.
What happened? Was it a nocturnal squirrel who gave up on the seed and chewed through the twine? Was it a raccoon?
