Our new backyard friend. Squirrely 2 (1 was at my previous residence). We think he thinks he can get away with slithering down the rod holding the bird feeder and just pretend to be a bird so as to fool us, and eat all of the bird food. We couldn’t figure out at first how it could be that all the bird seed, all of it, could disappear so fast, until we caught our little stealth ninja red handed. Needless to say, the birds are not happy about this. Yesterday we devised a top for the bird feeder placed at the level where the ring slips over the rod. As I sit and write this, Squirrely 2 just came to our kitchen picture window, where we have our own nature channel, and looked in at me with a “what the heck” look on his face. I pointed Squirrely 2 in the direction of a new dish that contains what is called Critter Food special just for him that I know he’ll appreciate…the birds were up first this morning and have been enjoying it also. They can work it out amongst themselves now.
