I highly recommend FM Brown’s Birdlovers No Waste Blend 40% Peanuts & Sunflower Hearts for attracting songbirds, cardinals, woodpeckers, and doves. I fill my birdfeeder with it but additionally cast it along the flat rail of my deck banisters for a bird buffet. Little did I know–until this morning–that it would attract the attention of a raccoon. She is leisurely draped over the banister cherry-picking the nuts and leaving the seed for the birds.
Watch out, little bandit: there are great Barred Owls nesting nearby. The owls were also out this morning gossiping about your thievery (perhaps contemplating your nutrition value for their soon-to-hatch owlets?).
From Ted Andrews Animal Speak : If raccoon comes to you, you may be being asked to let go of a situation, person, belief or habit. Reversely, the message may be for you to receive the gifts being offered to you by the Universe.
