Feeder Fireworks by Brian Pelkey


Available to buy on…

The red squirrels will monopolize a bird feeder. They will stay at the feeder for long periods to the dismay of the birds. Finally, another red squirrel will come along and want to have dinner too. That is when “Feeder Fireworks” commence and seeds and fists fly!!
