They always amaze me!

Category: Bird Brain Blog | Posted: Fri May 27, 2011 8:46 pm

I have a small basket from an old dishwasher that I have hanging from a shepherds crook that I put peanuts in. Usually the Titmice take them. Then the Downey Woodpeckers were coming and getting them. Soon the Red Bellied Woodpeckers and the Redheaded Woodpeckers learned how to get them. I have one enterprising Cardinal that had figured out how to get into the basket and collect the prize. This afternoon I saw motion out of the corner of my eye and saw that the basket was swinging wildly and figured a bird had landed or taken off from it. So I looked closer and there was a Chipmunk in the basket swinging happily with a peanut in his mouth! He must have seen me move and decided to leave his perch. He jumped from the basket to the pole and when he hit the pole, there was nothing for him to grab ahold of, so he slid down the pole in a spiral. I laughed so loud that he heard me and took off running when he got to the bottom. I was inside the house watching all of this action.

Oh I wish you'd had a video camera handy!! Those peanuts seem to go down well with the wildlife that visits your garden.

That must have been a funny sight! Chipmunks are so cute.
