Cheeky, our acrobatic squirrel

Category: Sharing Garden photos | Posted: Tue Dec 08, 2009 2:24 pm

Based on this photo I have determined that our acrobatic squirrel is female. So I have named her Cheeky.

I thought maybe if I wired my reindeer flag to the pole it would work like a scarecrow and keep her off.

It just gave her a better grip and just the right height!

She is fun to watch and the chipmunks and ground feeders are happy when she spills the seed. I let her eat for a few minutes and then chase her off.

I laughed out loud.... Well, she showed you, didn't she, Gail? What fun. She earns her treats, I think!

Squirrls are such a "crack up" to me. Very diligent and they love to mess with my cats...ha,ha,ha....

Gail, great pictures! Cheeky uses the pole because it is the easiest route but with the height of your feeder, she is very capable of jumping from the ground. So there is no obstacle that would prevent her from reaching her goal.
