I glanced out the living room window yesterday just in time to see this squirrel climbing onto the bird feeder from the magnolia tree. I originally put the feeder where it is so the squirrels would stay out of it--since I do feed them elsewhere. Apparently, the tree has grown enough that they can now easily reach it from the branches.
He (or she) carefully made its way down the pole...
and snagged the perch to pull it close enough to reach the seeds.
"Whoaaaaa....this thing is slippery..."
"I can hang on...I can hang on..."
"I can't hang on..."
"Whew...that was hard work..."
"Okay, I think I have the hang of it now...let's try it again..."
"Yeah, piece of cake..."
"Uh oh...I'm losing it again..."
"One more seed...just one more seed..."
