Woody the woodpecker continued again

So, Woody was happy with the arrival of 12 blocks of suet. He wasn't yelling anymore at an empty feeder, when he came to it. But then suddenly, a new problem came about... Something stole not only the suet, but the whole feeder hanging out! Yes, a thief was taking it away during the night... But, who was the thief? The squirrel or bear out of sight? I kept searching the yard to find it and bring it back, While Woody was yelling at me as if I had done the thief attack! At the end of the day, I brought the feeder inside. Then, one morning the culprit decided not to hide! Down the corner of the porch, there was the squirrel, carrying it away! I scolded him and put it back up with a better nail that day. When I left home the next day, again it was gone! This time I couldn't find it anywhere in the trees or lawn. Then the next day, the bear was walking across the backyard hill! Making me wonder, were they both now having a thrill? There is still no feeder, now Woody gave up for now... I've been busy, so no new one and the old not found. Heidi Sands 11/13/22

Too funny, Heidi! Animals are fun until they’re a nuisance but perhaps they see us the same way. God bless!

Heidi, I enjoyed your entertaining poem! I can relate Since I am a birder and try fighting the squirrels away, they are tricky creatures!

Hi Tania. I am happy you enjoyed it. Yes, the squirrels are tricky and acrobatic too. Thank you :)

They reign in their own ways, my friend. Seems like you got plenty of nuisance coming your way as they steal your bird feeder. Poor bird! Enjoy your environment in nature's wonders, Heidi, despite the recent episodes.

Whoa!! I have seen what squirrels can do, not where we live now but in another residence. However, we usually don't have bears around here. Having them would make it dangerous to go outside. I hope you get the situation handled. Thanks for sharing and for dropping by my page. Sara

Yes. We have the Black Bear come through here in the summer. Although, they do not like loud noise or a barking dog and run. But we are careful. This one I am concerned about. Cubs are born in January. We had a wildfire nearby in July and this lone cub arrived without mother. It is said they stay with mother a year and a half..but can survive after July on own. It has returned to the area numerous times and now I see it has not hibernated yet. A reason now that I don't want suet out there yet as well. We do not feed them. Thank you Sara :)

The mystery of the missing feeder, There was a woodpecker named Woody, Woody could be a bit Moody - When the feeder was gone, Woody yelled "Come on"! - But the squirell had stolen all the goodies!
