Bird-feeding tip
To foil the squirrel who eats a weeks worth of bird seed in an hour or so, Gardener's Supply suggests mixing the seed with hot pepper powder. The birds don't taste it at all, but the squirrels will avoid it like the plague.

Alternatively you could spend $60 on a squirrel-proof feeder ;-)

And if you happen to have a swimming pool on your property, as nearly everyone in Texas and California seems to, you can avoid having little animals fall into it while seeking water by providing for them elsewhere on the property.
