This is why we got rid of the bird feeder

one of our feeders anyway.

The other has a squirrel baffle on it. And they haven’t figured it out… yet.

I found the squirrels to be much less pesky when I actually feed them. :o)

At least they leave the bird feeders alone!

haha! That’s great!

There were so many squirrels raiding hte bird feeder in my backyard that there were seeds ALL OVER the ground – which killed the grass, and began all manner of crazy things sprouting up instead. I constantly had to weed my flower boxes. But one sunflower seed that landed in one of my landlords pots started to grow, and they decided the leave it. The thing is 6 feet tall!

Dumb squirrels. :P

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our dog Piper who is kind of a big deal on Instagram. We also have two human daughters: Emma (20) and Sarah (18). During the day I work as a writer at The Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999. The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, family travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for families. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
