Peace on Earth, Good Will Towards Squirrels: Guest Blogger from WBU Redmond, WA

"Blessed is the season which engages the whole world in a conspiracy of love."
-- Hamilton Wright Mabie

It's Christmas every seed delivery day for the squirrels that live next to the Wild Birds Unlimited (WBU) stores across the United States. We have one squirrel at the East Lansing, MI store that thinks we're in his way as we unload the seed every week.

Diane Drisch, the owner of a sister WBU store in Redmond, WA actually caught one cutey in the act with her camera and wrote about her encounters:

"During seed delivery we now have a really smart squirrel who waits for us to bring a stack of seeds inside. When the coast is clear he runs over to the nuts and grabs some. He also has a partner-in-training. Right now we think it's cute. But if he gets too bold, we'll have to rethink the whole "peace on earth, good will towards squirrels" theme of this month.
