Squirrels just wanna have fun!

Category: Visitors in the garden | Posted: Fri Dec 04, 2009 10:34 pm

I was having lunch, watching the birds at the feeder when I noticed one of our pesky gray squirrels eyeing the feeder. I decided to watch him for a few minutes before I chased him off.



I think I can, I think I can... ( photo / image / picture from gfreiherr's Garden )
That was my break from decorating the Christmas tree, back to work.

Finally, that pesky squirrel is gone! ( photo / image / picture from gfreiherr's Garden )

That was my break, back to decorating the Christmas tree.

I remember when my kids were little and they found 6 baby squirrels in the back yard. They nursed them and soon I had an entire yard full of 'bushy tailed rats' eating every bird seed I put out. One managed to get into my attic and that was the final straw between me and them.

I have some backyard squirrels that just use my squirrel baffle as a chair while they eat the seed.

Glad you all enjoyed the photos. Calomaar...I was so busy snapping photos I wasn't paying attention to his feet. He shimmied up that pole faster than I could snap the photos. Next time I need to put it in sports mode.

Squirrels seem to have the acrobatic moves down pat. At my house, they like to get into my orange tree and chew on the oranges.
