The Grinches who removed the bird feeders from the Galloping Goose trail may have been squirrels.

Over Christmas, I saw them knock down and take away a suet feeder from our backyard.

There are many squirrel-proof feeders that you can buy, but the best way I have found to prevent this is to use a suet mixture that does not include nuts.
