Owls Found Innocent of Bird Feeder Intimidation!!
Upon close inspection of the bird feeders, one was found to be empty and the other full of rotten seed that had sprouted and fermented. Horrible smell! No wonder the poor birds wouldn't come around anymore. The Plum Thief Squirrel is suspected of emptying the feeder under the maple tree so that feeder has been moved to a less accessible location for any creature without wings. The other feeder has been scrubbed and is drying out. It was hanging under the roof edge where rainwater drips so that apparently is not a good location. New sites are under consideration.
