My parents have returned from their holiday, so the feeder has come down. Not that they like having the tree rats eat the fruit, but my mums a bit squeamish
three mornings landed six squirrels and a skanky magpie that looked like it had been fighting the local cats, rather than leave it limping around with a busted wing, I put it out.
Now, I know that after a head shot nerves keep firing, the last squirrel I hit with a shot between eye and ear was still “breathing“, never wanting anything to suffer and at the time not knowing that it was a good head shot, I gave a follow up head shot, still breathing! Three head shots before it stopped!
The last two and the magpie, feeder will go back up at home now.
