Many thanks Cole’s, I used to think that all Squirrels were just God’s creatures, but I have recently really developed a “hatred” for Squirrels (all kinds, colors, shapes and sizes)… my brother-in-law says that, “a squirrel is nothing but a rat with a bushy tail that can climb a tree”… I don’t think I would go that far, but they sure make a mess of my bird feeder and keep wild birds away … Now that I have started using Cole’s Safflower seed as bird food, the Squirrels (all of them) stay away and all of the wild birds that I WANT to feed come to my buffet (my bird feeder filled with Safflower seed) and just feed away!!! Thanks again Cole’s for solving the Squirrel problem for me.
