I love squirrels, rather I should say that I love watching them! This little critter is noshing on the feed that we put out for the birds who are currently residing in our outside vent (from our kitchen range hood). The birdies have built a nest there and in the tall skinny trees under my office window. It has been so cold, that we put out water and seed for them. So, this little guy, climbs ontop of the set up we have for the bowl and was busted sneaking the bird's food. I took this photo as I was standing in the kitchen looking out the window over the sink, and he turned to look at me!!
If the squirrel is out there when we take out the dog, dog goes all beserk and chases it either to the oaks in the front yard or to the fences. I think he would love to taste the squirrel. ;)
I can watch the squirrels in the trees from my office window, often dog will want up in my lap at my desk so that he can watch them too.
A few of my girlfriends and I actually put together a Squirrel themed mini album--Donna hand sewed tiny stuffies for the front cover of the book--so cute! We all feed the critters and have taken photos of them over the years. We have a squirrel here every year that is missing part of its tail. Not sure if it is the same guy. I have to pull out my photos of them coming up on the front porch to take peanuts and the photos of them where they come up to the front window and stand on the brick ledge and look into the house if there is no feed in the front feeder! They are about as hilarious as our dog and his quirks!
