Well, I tried again. I moved the bird feeder with the really tasty seed (nuts, fruit, seed) to a new spot. I first hung it on a small limb of the Hawthorne tree (thorns). That didn’t work. They went out the thorny limb and undid the hooks holding the catch tray underneath. So I put up the chicken wire/rebar cage underneath the feeder hanging from a shepherd’s hook. That’s not working either.

As an aside, a new cable company is laying cable in my neighborhood. I chatted with the guy marking the lines and learned he and his Dad have a “critter removal” business. I took his name and number. I may need to make that call.
