Really? I thought squirrels were bad.
We looked out to see a white tailed deer eating out of the platform feeder. Shins on the baffle for balance and muzzle stuck into the feeder, the tongue flicking around like an anteater's.
I know there are deer flies, I have been bitten by them often enough, but I'm not aware of a deer bird.
The deer are welcome to clean up under the bird feeders but I think this is just being greedy.
You can see a standard sized baffle on the feeder in the foreground, actually there are two baffles as our squirrels are creative.
The baffle on the platform feeder is a custom made one that even keeps racoons at bay but evidently not deer.
