We have a bird feeder.

I am enthusiastic about birds and all wildlife barring mosquitoes.  (I have no idea what purpose they serve other than spreading disease and making me uncomfortable.)

Yesterday, I put a fresh block of suet out for the downy woodpeckers and red-bellied woodpeckers that visit.  As I type there is warbler on it!

As I was making my coffee this morning, I looked out and saw a little, male downy pecking away at … nothing.  The suet cage was open, and the block of suet was gone.

A thief had come in the night and taken it!  

Raccoons.  Definitely, raccoons.  

I am happy to feed all the raccoons and squirrels and what have you, they need only fill out a request form in the lobby.

In an effort to not be stolen from again, I have replaced the suet and zip-tied the cage shut. 

So far, so good. Now, I have to have a talk with a squirrel about nesting upon the bird feeder. 

She must share, or she will not be allowed to dine at this establishment anymore!
