Birds ignore my suet but the squirrel loves it!

Look at the picture I've included! Last week I told you about my furry visitor, he lives at the top of the tree outside my window. Now that the leaves are gone, I can see his nest. Today he came down when it began to snow and headed straight for the suet that I made. You can see how much he likes it! The birds aren't eating the suet this year, they loved it last year. I haven't changed the recipe. Lard, corn meal, raisins, cranberries, nuts and corn flakes all go into it. I think I will put out a little bowl of it for him so he won't have to struggle with the net bag and possible tear it. I'm quite fond of the little furbaby!

I bet he'd love a bowl of peanuts in the shell even better! when i lived in ontario we had these big black ugly squirrels i hated them. but here in NS we have those cute kind that you've captured in your picture.. We have a suet out front for the birds in a cage thing.. so far no squirely visitors here.
