Almost everyone who has ever set out a bird feeder has had to deal with a certain incorrigible and fluffy-tailed
intruder. This unruly rodent makes no effort to sneak around or to remain in any way hidden. Instead, the
common backyard squirrel is a bold and brazen gate-crasher. When these uninvited guests arrive, they show
neither respect nor fear, so reprimanding them is a waste of time. Similarly, chasing them away is useless,
since they are sure to come back after giving the birds no more than a quick turn at the seeds that were set out
for them. The only sensible approach to the problem seems to be to give up. Backyard bird watchers will just
have to succumb and either take down their feeders or simply get used to the sight of snacking squirrels.
