Our Squirrels

TIPPER

These are pictures of one of our many, pesky squirrels. They're very naughty because they come and eat all our birdie food and eat all the woodpecker cake and suet cake that Dad puts out. I must say, even though we don't like them, I admire their ability to hang from the gutters and get to the food. Luckily I don't have to go through all those gyrations to get my food!

Dad has tried putting squirrel baffles on the feeders to keep the squirrels off, but they're very smart and are good acrobats, so they always find a way to get at the food.

They're very bold, too, and nothing scares them away except if Mom or Dad open the patio door. Then they run off for a few seconds but they come right back when they don't see anyone standing there.

We don't like them! But we do enjoy watching them. They make a dreary winter day more fun.

Hi! I have squirrels too. I like to wath them raid the birdfeeders. But if they get too bold and start
going after my birds, I'll chase them away. No furry little muncher is going to scare my fev-vers.

Those chubby squirrels are soooo bad. They hog all of the snacks here too.
The birds are more fun to watch because we have lots of blue birds.

Even if you don't like the squirrels do they entertain you? That makes them worth something. I wish I knew some way to help you keep them away from the bird food.

Very bold! I haven't seen my squirrels in ages, but that's OK because at least my birds get their food.
