    WHAT?!? blue jays? NO WAY! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wow.gif[/img] I havea bird feeder near my plants outside, and there are literally about 100 birds that come every day, every time I look out the window there's like 10 birds, and I've seen 3 different blue jays that come all of the time, but never bothered my plants... maybe the bird seed distracts them?

    Key word: Bird Feeder. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img] They seem to peck at my vft's the most. I believe it is a curious peck, then end up leaving because they vfts do not taste that great...thank goodness.

    OOOOOH I'm gettin' to where I hate squirrels with a passion. They're about the only animal that I DON'T like. Reasons:

    (1)I have a gazebo style bird feeder hanging on a Shephard's Hook; I always put car grease all over the pole leading up to the feeder, to keep the dang squirrels from climing up it. Eventually, they figure out that if they slide back down it alot, they rub the grease off. They then start to eat the seed in the feeder. When that happens, I sneak up on them with a short peice of PVC pipe and throw it at them; I try to hit them with it(don't worry. The pipe is very small and light and doesn't hurt them. It just scares 'em sh*tless). When it does hit them, they take a flying leap off the feeder, which makes the feeder do a 360 and all the seed goes flying. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img] I don't think it would save any seed If I didn't knock them off the feeder by throwing the pipe at them. They would still send the feeder into a 360 even if I banged on the door and yelled instead.

    (2)They are always burying their acorns in my flower pots(thank God they don't dig in the cp pots as well)! Of all the places in my yard, they just have to pick my flower pots. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img]

    My only hope to deter them is my little dog, Fluffy(he's a Pomeranian). Step one: see squirrels. Step two: call Fluffy. Step three: release Fluffy into backyard . Step four: laugh as squirrels go racing across the yard and up the tree, fleeing from Fluffy as he chases them wildly across the yard!! MWAHAHAHAHAHA!!! CURSE YOU POSSESSED RODENTS YOU!!!

    well, why don't you just provide a seed tray on the ground by the feeder? and move it away from the feeder every day, untill it's on the other side of the yard? then them dang squirles won't bother your birds... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
    and/or, get pinecones, spead peanut butter on them, and put them somewhere else in the yard

    I dont know man thats kinda like me puttin the dog dish in one corner of the apartment and the cats dish in another corner and expecting them to stay outta each others food.
    But who knows maybe it will work.

    Personally I dont mind getting brutal and goin for blood. I will hang rat traps in the trees they use to get up onto my deck if I have to. Heck once my snakes get bigger I'll realy get creative in killing them if they insist on comming up here. Of course thats a ways away unless I get that burmese python I was offered today [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wow.gif[/img]

    By the way I love that link Pyro! You come up with some good ones [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    BCK Great pic I love it!

    Flytrap girl next time they wipe all of the grease off flick a match in the area [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]
