Squirrel under the porch this morning. Rippin` large chunks of towel & running up a tree with his/her `prized` item! I put out quality material scraps.. like Waverly. Wonder if squirrels do nest contests........ hmm

I put out bits of twine for the birds. I wonder if shiny objects would bring magpies.
Probably crows.

This site says:
"Crows are attracted to shiny objects. They may fly off with bits of foil or even jewelry if given a chance."

This site says:
"No. Wild crows do not like, nor collect shiny objects. They do not hide, store, or cache anything but food."

CAW!
