The Lady Has Big News!

Prudence and Sydney in the tree

Oh Sera, my friend, did you hear?  That nice lady graduated from college with all A’s!  In addition to being so nice to us, she is so smart!  Do you know how hard this was for her to complete that degree so successfully?  Who says you can’t teach a mature person new tricks?  She did this while working full time in a very stressful job, taking care of her two sons, taking care of everything while her husband is out of town during the week, and at the same time making sure you and I and our friends have enough to eat.  We are so lucky to have her in our little world!!

PS – I hope she is not too modest to put this note on her website. I WANT EVERYONE TO READ IT.

Gotta fly.  Love, Sydney.


Merry Christmas!!!!!

Merry Christmas, everyone! Sera here. Santa Claws came! Guess what? He left peanuts, filberts and almonds in my stocking! I guess I was on his nice list again this year!

Enjoy your day and keep your friends and family close. I plan to as soon as I inspect all the offerings at the feeder.








Oh, Boy, It’s Tonight!!!!

Hi, everyone!  Sera here.  I’m so excited I can barely type!  It’s Christmas Eve!  The nice lady has already been outside several times feeding us critters here in the neighborhood.  We’ve had blackoil sunflower seed, a wild birdseed mix, critter crunch, peanuts and new orange flavored suet nuggets.  We are well-taken care of here for Christmas.  Santa Claws comes tonight, and we all know that he will bring us what we asked him for for Christmas. What did we all ask him for?

serasanta You know I asked him for more peanuts because you can never have enough peanuts.  They are so yummy to eat, and they are good for burying.  Then I can dig them up later for a yummy mid-winter snack.

Sydney asked him for some more of the good seed so she’ll have enough to keep her and Miss Lily fed, healthy and warm all winter long.  If he brings enough, we know that Sydney will share with those who are in need. Sydney is loving and giving that way.


Sandy asked him for some foreign language books (she’s learning German).  She also wants an ear of corn smeared with peanut butter.  It makes it hard to grip the corn that way, but the peanut butter is so extra creamy and yummy. It keeps us squirrels warm in the cold, and Sandy likes to hop up and grab the corn cob and slide down yelling, “Wheeeee!” when she slides off.


Prudence asked him for some extra shiny acorns for both her and George.  Her winter cache is pretty full, but both Prudence and George like to spend those snowy winter nights polishing the acorns to a high gloss sheen. It reminds them of sunny summer days and gives them something to dream about.  Besides the inside of those acorns are extra tasty and just what a blue jay wants when it’s cold.


Don’t forget to put cookies and milk out for Santa Claws tonight.  He likes the peanut butter cookies best.  Don’t forget the carrots for the reindeer!  I hope you all get exactly what you want this Christmas!  Hugs and kisses from all of us here in the neighborhood around the gray house.
