Last spring, the blue eggs in the nest in our front tree mysteriously disappeared one-by-one.  Finn over at The Naturephile suggested that squirrels might be stealing the eggs.  Considering that all of the bird houses along the trails and in the parks around here have spikes like these to keep squirrels away, I think he’s right.

Here’s what the same squirrel spikes look like covered in snow.
