@johnbishop Hi, John. Thanks from my bird families. I just ordered, from Chewy, some peanut suet and a couple of new feeders. I also found several kinds of wild bird seed w/chili peppers! Squirrels don't like the hot pepper…..is this true? I've never known this and got some for a couple of my feeders I want to fill for special birds. I also have a new hummingbird feeder from last year I've never hung. It's going out tomorrow, and with my flowers hanging around I may see some tiny hummers. Hope so….I don't mind feeding the squirrels as they are important in our area and are lots of fun to watch chase and 'play'. Important part of my outside my picture life, that's extremely important to my health. Thanks for your input. Blessings and enjoy life. elizabeth

@ess77 Talk about squirrel 🐿️ my husband made a house bird feeder ,next day we looked out and something was inside the house yep a squirrel 🐿️ so he had to take the roof of boy that 🐿️ was happy to get out of there right to our woods he went.The hummers love to fight over the nectar fun to watch I had a swing for them it was fun seeing them on it

@ess77 It will really be interesting to get your report on wild bird seed with chili peppers! We have squirrels around here, but I decided not to hang any bird feeders. There are lots of places for all the birds to feed. Feeders would draw the hawks and kestrels in for quick snackies of unaware small birds! We are inundated with robins, scrubjays, chickadees, thrush, mockingbirds, and woodpeckers right now.
