If I hadn't seen it with my own eyes, I wouldn't have believed it. Who knew?
I saw another fat bird sleeping under the bird feeder set up outside of the window in the new addition. I thought it strange that he was sleeping there but he was. I went outside to feed my squirrels. I was walking towards the tree when I saw a squirrel running down the veranda to the bird feeder area - they sit there and eat the seeds the birds drop. I watched as he approached the bird. The bird could not fly away and hopped away from the squirrel who had gone up to it cautiously. Then, he grabbed the bird and was biting it!! I ran up and tried to scare him away but he held on. Finally he dropped the bird and ran a short distance away. He stopped and looked back at me and the bird. The bird was dead!! The squirrel tried to get the bird again but I chased him away. I didn't know that squirrels killed birds. I think he would have eaten him. Protein? I guess that is nature but who knew? I picked the bird up and put him in the bushes. If the squirrel wants him for breakfast, he can go looking for it.
Life in the bush...
