The bird-feeders are covered in snow, so we put a pan of birdseed on the ground and the following is the saga of events that followed:
Squirrel is in bird-feeder which is covered with snow. Cardinal is on ground eating seed. Squirrel sees Cardinal...
|Female Cardinal is not far from male|
|Birds are scared away as squirrel scrambles down tree to birdseed|
|squirrel is triumphant!|
