Those damned squirrels....

Bad enough we decided to forgo the gardening this year because of the population explosion of squirrels, chipmunks and rabbits, but now the damn tree rats have started going after the hummingbird feeders.
They've already destroyed the two older ones by chewing them so they don't hold nectar.

I will be practicing my "carnival midway" marksmanship in order to keep them at bay.

Sure as hell will make them easier to spot (no pun intended) by predators.

Then there's the added plus of screwing with the animal-loving tree huggers by having them think it's a new species of animal...
