Been trying to catch a chipmunk and squirrel stealing my dogs food to test this cage I built but the dang birds keep getting to it first. I've caught like 4 various birds in the last two days but they have always been uninjured and just sitting there relaxing. I've seen pigeons walking around it on the trail cam I got set but I can't really figure out what could have happened. The trap was only set for like 30min before I came back out.

I trapped pigeons on the top of a 260 foot cement grain elevator. Coon would climb the out side to the top and pull the pigeon out of the cage. Cats will pull birds out of cages too. I could see tracks in the snow on the roof, so it was pretty easy to tell what went on.

Daffy Duck and Bugs Bunny were going to scare Elmer Fudd with a big firecracker. It was Daffy's turn to hold the firecracker.







Lol......most likely a raccoon.

A Eurasian collared dove zigged when he should have zagged.

Appears a cat got a free bird if only set for 30 minutes.

Yeah I would say birds are eating the food.

Yeah so apparently I caught two at the same time and they made so much racket it got the dogs in a frenzy to the point they shoved their heads in the trap ( colony stye doors ) and pulled them out smirk

I can only figure the pigeons made more noise and panicked more because I've caught other birds but on the camera they don't act half as panicked and just kinda sit down after two or three minutes

I'm betting the birds are more guilty than the chipmunks and squirrels.of the dog food theft.

wow, thanks for sharing, Wolfy. I thought at first you were scattering feathers trying to catch a bobcat in your cage in garage or something. grin


Money cannot buy you happiness, but it can buy you a trapping license and that's pretty close.
