2017 - SNEAKY-SQUIRLY-SEEDY-SNATCHY-SNACKY!
by J. R. Beatty
Cardinals, doves, wrens, robins, black birds, mocking birds, … and even a woodpecker have all fed there. I enjoy watching these hungry little "peckers" devour each tiny morsel.
But there is also a grey squirrel that likes to Lazily stretch out on his white belly to SUNBATHE for a while on the porch handrail right below the bird feeder. (Click on photos)
This squirrel is obviously so tempted by the sweet succulent smelling seeds just above. His nostrils flare and his long, wispy tail wiggles as his sharp, squirrel brain plans his next moves to reach his stomach's desire.
What a long, boarding-house REACH he has!
At first, we tried to scare Mr. Squirrel away. But, he just jumped down to the ground and hid out-of-sight around the corner of the building.
Sure enough, he keeps coming back after a few minutes or the next day for another UPSIDE-DOWN,
