Squirrels in the Birdhouse!

One of our favorite weekend rituals is to open the back door, grab a cup of coffee, the newspaper and laze around in the morning sun watching the birds flit around the little house we put up for them. Sounds great, right? Just one minor problem...

No matter where we put our house, hanging from the tree, hanging from the roof or as Martha recommends, on a free-standing pole in the backyard, the birdseed was disappearing at an alarmingly fast rate. We had our suspicions that those delicate little birdies weren't secretly binging on the food....then we busted the culprit red-handed. Keep in mind, this photo was taken after we tied the roof down.

Any suggestions? Are our bird watching days numbered?
