Now I know why I was going through bird seed so fast.

This is what I saw out the window when I got home today. This little....sweet heart....was poking his little finger in the holes in the feeder and raking seed out until he found what he was looking for. When I interrupted him and went over to the feeder, there were easily two cups of seeds on the ground. 

I wonder it THIS is the culprit that has been digging up my gardens?

Isn't it a shame that some of the greatest pests look really cute!? I have this problem with Squirrels, who eat far more seed than the birds do.

Didn't I say racoons!! They like the big black sunflower seeds the best, so he's digging for them is my guess. You have to move the squirrel buster out further ;-) And, the holes in the lawn may well be the raccoon digging for grubs. Still a lot of snow here Erin, but a couple of sunny days have been a bonus. x

I think raccoons are adorable too!! I love them. I hear they can be nasty, but I've never witnessed it.

Yes you did!! Here is the proof.
Yet again, I bow to your mastery. You are REALLY good at garden sleuthing as well as gardening!!!
