Got Bird Food???

These are some of the funny pictures that I have recently taken.  The first is of the Northern Yellow-Shafted Flicker on the suet fat block feeder with some unexpected company, a Starling.   The next is of the Grey Squirrel trying to snag a piece of that same suet and meeting with the disapproval of the Starling that is on the top of the same feeder.  The last photograph is of a drake Mallard Duck that showed who is boss when an American Coot got a bit too close to all of that fallen birdseed mix on the ground under the feeder.  Who would have thought that the mild-mannered Mallard was so aggressive toward its neighbors?  I hope you enjoy these pictures that I took this past week from my window.  By the way, our weather is just beautiful!  We also have had a raccoon visit the backyard during the very early morning hours (another bird feeder bandit!).  The raccoon was seen for the first time by my husband just this morning at 5:00 AM.  We had taken the entire feeder inside because it was being emptied overnight!  I buy expensive bird food so we took the step to ensure a fair shake for the birds!  Please click on the thumbnail version to see the larger picture.  Enjoy!
