Haibun: Red Squirrel Feeder

In the glen there is an age-old tradition of hanging squirrel feeders on tree branches and filling them with nuts and pieces of fruit. The squirrels raise the lid with their head, leaving their front paws free to gather the bounty. With free access to favourite foods they seem happy to leave nearby birdfeeders alone.
