His Good Side



See this rascal sitting with his back to me?  I've come to the conclusion that he is the ring leader...he, with with tan ears, is unmistakably the leader of the pack that attacks my feeders!



Trust me, that's HIM!  I watched the whole thing.  Each took a turn or two climbing the nearby trees and then hurdling themselves towards the feeders.  However, they all failed.  All except the tan-eared wonder.  As he hurled his plumpness (and I mean plump) in the air, it was hard to believe he made it!

I later caught him after he'd removed the roof on another feeder located a little further down along the stone wall.



He also seems to think his backside is most photogenic...
so I'm sharing him with everyone at

Now I know not to bother with the half globe set-up. It doesn't seem to help!

I totally enjoy watching squirrels. They are so industrious and they never give up.

Your post made me laugh! As I write this, there are 5 squirrels chowing down on the bird food that I put out mid-morning. I'm glad you can tell them apart. I can't tell one from the other because to me they all look alike. I wonder if they think the same thing about us? ;-)

We had our first squirrel on the feeders last year and I'm betting there will be an entire herd out there with the first cold snap. There's plenty of natural food for them in the woods behind the house but let one snow flake fly and they get lazy and start raiding.
