This bluejay is squawking ... "Come and get it!" "There's a buffet on the compost pile."
A buffet it is! There's two five gallon pails of granola with almonds and raisins and walnuts dumped on it. Bait that was left over from bear hunting and baiting that sonny boy left sitting outside in the rain. Bait that needed to be dumped out before it began fermenting in the pail.
I think the tweetie birds will be happy and I won't be surprised to see the deer, turkeys, pine squirrels, gray squirrels, black squirrels, chipmunks, partridge, Sasquatch, bear and coon out there munching away either :) I just hope it doesn't attract any skunks.
It's right off the edge of the yard where I can see it from the house ... and hopefully can get some nice pics if something does come in. Time will tell.
What else is new around here??? We lead such quiet and boring lives.
My DIY hornet / fly trap is up and working like a charm.
It's just 1/4 cup of sugar in water in a soda bottle.
One day later ...
... it's filling up with drowned hornets and flies, even those nasty little fruit flies.
Amazingly, even though there are a lot of bumblebees right now working the bamboo blossoms... only 10 feet away from it ... I never catch bees in this trap. Never.
I have to empty it about once a week.
It doesn't take much to amuse me :)
Until next time ...
So it goes in my neck of the woods.
