THE SCAT SOUND

It is unspellable
though it sounds a bit like German.
The birds and the squirrels
have heard it often, as have I.

She means to only frighten squirrels.
The sound is quite effective
but only briefly works to free the feeder.

The birds have it easy .
All they have to do is fly
to reach their feast
then fly away
whereas the squirrels
use many acrobatic motions
to access the seeds they both enjoy.

My scat sound is lower
and less effective, too.
But then, I must admit
I think the squirrels
are worthy of some help
with the thievery that  distresses her
but, I admit, impresses me.
