The 2nd Amendment Protects the Right to Own and Bear Arms...

...I am not sure if it covers squirrels, however.

What most 21st Century Americans simply do not grasp is that the Constitution and Bill of Rights were not written to to give rights to the citizens of our then-new nation, but was instead written to tightly constrain the federal government.

Our own first line of defense is "manned" by our attack squirrels and our special-forces raccoons.
They know where the food comes from, and they jealously guard that source.

Our third line of defense is the family of hummingbirds who drink from our feeders.
(If you think that I'm kidding, then I know that you've never been attacked by a hungry male hummingbird.)

We have a "Recon Raccoon." This little fellow will show up looking for food. If there is none (sometimes we forget to put some out, or we don't have anything) he will go away. If there is food, within minutes two more will show up. 

I have been wanting to put out a game camera to capture (digitally) some of the critters that come around.

Speaking of Hummingbirds . . . . Visit my Hummingbird Cafe

Dang, Chuck, keeping all of those filled is a full-time job!

We only have two, one of them a duplicate of your largest, and the other about half that size.
In summer, I have to fill 'em daily.

The Anna's kind overwinters with us. Then the Rufous ones arrive in spring (read: now), and take the whole place over.
Sometimes I have to stand on the verandah, right under a feeder, to keep the Rufouses away and give the Annas' a chance.

YEAH . . . The competition gets exciting sometimes.
Having plenty of feeders helps that a lot . . . . sometimes I think they are arriving  in families.

my wife can tell you! We have, or had a family of hummingbirds and when she would go out back, she'd get attacked
