racoons on top of bird feeder
If you do get the squirrel proof feeder, be sure to "secure" the lid latch with
a twist-tie or similar wire. Our racoon population figured out how to open our
squirrel proof feeder, then proceed to gorge themselves as well as scoop the
seeds out onto the ground for the squirrels. I've actually seen the racoons
sitting inside the feeder stuffing themselves. Smart critters...
