But here's the rub. We also have a local raccoon. A hungry, feisty, BOLD raccoon. A raccoon who likes to climb up on the deck, tip the feeder, hook a perch on the railing of the deck, and let the bird seed pour into his mouth...leaving none for the bird.
He does leave us something though. If seeing the tipped feeder isn't enough evidence that he's been around, there's frequently a small pile of...er....poop, left on the deck. It really just adds insult to injury.
I do not like that raccoon.
