Make like a tree and he won’t see me.


Oh, yes I will!  …. I’m sure this defensive strategy must be the undoing of many a squirrel – but not enough to keep the practice out of the gene pool.

I haven’t seen a squirrel in the garden for a few months now, so, while it’s a pleasure to seem them, I’ll have to keep an on on the bird feeder because these critters can empty it faster than anything else.

  1. Yep! I’ve got one of those too! 😀 It’s great to see how he indeed hides behind the tree and when the coast is clear settles down to eat as much as the birds usually eat in a week or more… Usually I don’t feed the birds in summer – they shouldn’t get too dependent on what I dish out – so the problem wil probably solve itself the weather willing 🙂 But it’s really fun to watch it 🙂

  2. There are SO many squirrels around my apartment building… and ON my apartment building! I’m not sure exactly what they are doing up there, but I’m telling you… at times I’d swear they were a herd of elephants! 🙂
