squirrel-y

this little critter has been visiting our bird feeder every evening. we can watch him dine from our dinner table. esme' has named him "chunk", which i think is very fitting. i wonder though, would he prefer something other than wild bird seed? i am happy to oblige him, just as long as he leaves my garden alone!

That second one is a perfect shit Erika! Looks like he's a keeper!

It's all well and good until he's too fat and the feeder starts to tip and drop him off!

Squirrels are such curious and hilarious creatures. We enjoy many in our well treed neighborhood. We even have a little squirrel nest up in the tree house.

if you are looking for alternatives to bird seed, you can make suet for the little fellow. it's a fun project to do with the kids, too!

Awwww... I love squirrels! The new neighbor across the street aparently feeds the local squirrels with his hands. lol! We are excited to go over and see him do this. ;)

I once had a squirrel eat a whole sunflower head from my garden. He stool the thing and took it away! I started taking off the ones that were ready to feed the birds and put them in the bird feeder... and always the squirrels got to them first. Maybe that is something that you could do for your buddy there?

I love squirrels. Some people complain about them at the feeders, but I enjoy them. We have a ton and even a little selfish chipmunk who likes to fill his cheeks, run home to unload, and repeat.
