Downey Woodpecker and a Flicker came at about 8:30 and 8:45 and dined on
a chili laced cylinder of mixed seed called a Flaming Squirrel by the
maker; bought them at Wild Birds Unlimited. Each generation of squirrel
babies tries it ONCE. Got photos of both visitors. Then, one of the
Nuthatch parents landed along with a baby, which did the "feed me flap"
and was rewarded with multiple mouthfuls of the same stuff. We have
placed a dried corn ear suspended in a spiral wire hanger on the other
side of this "shepherd's Hook" to compensate those comedic squirrels.
