For My Furry Friends

 The squirrels have figured out a way to get onto my bird feeders... smart little buggers.  Country Boy added some more tin and extended the roof line... so far, so good!  I also decided to give them corn, sunflower seeds and peanuts in the little bird bath that I purchased awhile ago in hopes to distract them from the birds' feeders.


When I walked out the screen door with my camera in hand, this little guy just knew for sure that I was going to chase him off so he decided to 'lay low' and maybe I wouldn't notice him!


After he realized I wasn't going to run him off, he sat up and started munching away...


One tasty morsel after another...


He couldn't eat them fast enough just in case I changed my mind and decided to run him off...


After awhile, his belly was full and he finally left the buffet line to someone else!

I still hear a squirrel jumping onto the roof of the bird feeder station every now and then but, as of yet, they haven't been able to figure out how to get to the feeders.  I guess they think the birds are getting better food than they are... suspicious little things!


I hope you are enjoying the rest of your weekend!


Till next time,

It wouldn't be so bad if they would just eat from the feeders, but they have to scatter everything looking for their goodies. Good idea about the VIP Squirrel Buffet. Hope it works out well for both you and the squirrels. They can be expensive little piggies to feed! :) LOL

It is definitely the Year of the Squirrel. He could become our national critter.
