You know how I love the animals around Bickley’s Pond.
All the animals.
But I do not love it when the squirrels get to the bird feeders. Tim has made an art of bird feeder placement, determining just the right position with just the right hood to stop the nonsense.
Then just last night I looked out the big window of my studio to see a squirrel plastered to the lower feeder.
How on earth???? I wondered.
Then I found out.
I watched him do it five or six times. Then I decided any creature with that much ingenuity, that much gumption, that much fearlessness deserves all the birdseed he can eat.
Carry on, my brother.
I’m sure he’s one of the baby squirrels that was rehabbed over at Carolina Wildlife. Jay makes sure they get their Wheaties.
OF COURSE HE IS!!! I don’t know why I didn’t think of that to begin with. Yay Carolina Wildlife!
I have some ingenious and determined squirrels at my house, too. Sometimes you just have to admire gumption. Live and let live.
I know! The first time I was amazed but still a little angry. But then as he kept on–I just had to give in!
Scott isn’t gonna approve…
Please don’t let him see this.
No question marks!!! Tried am emoji. Anyway, love that cute squirrel!!!
I fixed it under the hood…sorry about that, my friend. Thanks for commenting!
That just tickles me!!!!!!
I just keep watching it and laughing. It so surprised me!
The wonder of the world! You go squirrel.
You really do have to cheer for him a bit, don’t you? Randy could probably help him with his form although I have to say he looks pretty good!
