Who is the arch enemy of every bird-feeding human?
Why this bushy-tailed thief, of course!
The squirrels in my backyard are resolute rodents to say the least! They wait until they think the coast is clear…
…and then land on the deck rail and help themselves to the seed tray smorgasbord.
Most of the time I find these determined little demons to be a frustrating nuisance, but there is a small part of me that can’t help but find them fascinating.
If I am outside with the camera, I often let them grab a quick snack while I grab some quick photos, and then chase them off with a hiss and a stomp.
Still, as soon as I go back inside, I know these greedy gray gobblers will be right back at their thievery! Ah well, I guess it just goes with the territory!
