My cousin and Aunt are big squirrel fans, much to my mother's dismay. The kids and I have made a few bird feeders, but we noticed that it seems the squirrels enjoy them more. So now we just pour out some birdseed, or crumbs, or sunflower seeds on our deck each morning. We love to watch the birds and squirrels while we eat. I especially love the bright red Cardinal and his subtle mate. Tyler is smitten with them all and will often stand at the window long after we have all moved on to other things.
