I wanted to say thank you to several of my blog readers, Quasar9, and Quilldancer and others who have supported me.
I appreciate your responses. I really appreciate those who have donated to help feed my little squirrels. As some of you are aware that this area in the last couple of years has had a major infestation of Spruce Tree Bud Worms, which has stopped cone production on most if not all of the trees. Two years have gone by now in this area without cones being produced. It's causing mass starvation among the Red Squirrel Populations. I'm getting many more travelers coming long distance through the woods searching for nourishment at my feeders. Being the Red Squirrels are very territorial it's making for serious problems for my resident squirrels in the yard.
Nonetheless, I'll continue to put out sunflower seeds and other food stuffs in multiple locations to keep the conflict at a minimum.
Thanks so much for your support and kind words.
