A ShutterBug Explores ~ Saturday Critters

'Give fools their gold, and knaves their power, let fortune's bubbles rise and fall, who

sows a field, or trains a flower or plants a tree is more than all.'

~ John Greenleaf Whittier

Last of the bird feeding on Cape Ann MA 

We have had squirrels which could be handled but raccoons on deck was too much.

We are sharing with: Eileen's Saturday Critters.

I love your comments. Thank You.

  1. i like your new look!! too bad that you have to remove your feeders...those raccoons spoil everything!!

  2. Hello,

    Love the sweet Titmouse. They are a great yard bird. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Take care and stay well. Have a great day, happy weekend.

  3. The Tufted Titmouse gang has been quite active lately. Love that we can watch them all winter.
    I'm with you, NO raccoons that close.

  4. That sweetie sure is enjoying that meal. We don't like it when raccoons come on our deck, they scare our ferals.

  5. We have to either take our feeders down at night and put them back up in the mornings or close the holes. It's a challenge to keep the critters from the easy snacks! Happy weekend!

  6. Aw, too bad about the racoons messing with your bird watching but they won't stop coming at the feeder unless you do take it down- at least for a little awhile

  7. Love the photo and the saying. To be raccoon proof, I think a tall stand on the deck with a baffle on the pole might work, if it is away from the railing.

  8. Hope you continue to feed birds. Have a nice day

  9. Oh dear, once racoons find a deli, they don't stop visiting until the food is gone. Cute photo

  10. Hi Carol, what a great new look. Keep safe and well. Jo

  11. A wise decision. Can't have racoons around your property. They aren't healthy. The little titmouse will miss the seed tho.

  12. Naughty raccoons; that birdie is a cutie.

  13. We don't have squirrels or racoons here, are they classed as pests?
