Even though my feeder is squirrel proof, they still attempt to get any seed that has fallen on the bottom of the tray. I have to go out side with the broom and scare them off or let my dog take a go at scaring them, she like most dogs hate squirrels. I cannot even say the word in my house, if she hears it she goes crazy. So I have to call the furry rodents. Domino cannot wait to have a go at one.
