Squirrely Antics in My Backyard

This little squirrel usually has a play companion but was alone today, so he decided to strike a pose. I could not resist taking a photo even though I was inside, shooting through a window & screen and had to use lots of zoom. It was too cute.


  1. Ha - I hate those fuckers though. They mess up my bird table and cause all manner of destruction. Rats, on the other hand, are ok by me. I watched a rat eating on my bird table a couple of weeks ago, and had to throw three disc-golf discs at it before it went away (the third one was a little too well aimed - I just wanted to see it move around, but instead I nailed it and it ran away).

    What kind of birds do you get up there?

  2. I like the squirrels and I call all of them 'Squirrely'....rats and mice I can do without. For the past couple of years we have a huge chipmunk population and while they are cute, they have made my backyard a hazardous place to walk with all their little holes.

    As for birds, we have the usual robins, jays, wrens, sparrows, cardinals, crows and an occasional bluebird. I am not very knowledgeable about birds.
