Due to a new addition on our house, we are now feeding Socrates, our golden retriever, on our porch. This makes Mr. Blue Jay very happy. He comes and sits on the porch rail looking for any trouble and to see if Socs has left any dog food for him. (Socs is a very messy eater.) Then he gives us screech, hops down and gets some food.
One night around 10.30 pm I was in our new addition and Mr. Skunk came looking around for some food. He stuck his nose right up to the glass door and looked in. He also helped himself to some dog food. He startled the life out of me the next night when I opened the front door and he was standing four foot away with his tail raised, so I had to make new arrangements for the dog food. So beware of who is coming to dinner invited or not.
(PS Mr. Skunk was a very nice looking one)
