Sat outside for nearly an hour tonight after an early dinner. There was a nice breeze and I was hoping to see the woodpeckers or perhaps a Cardinal or two. It was pretty quiet, but I knew that they were out there...squirrels that is! I could feel them staring at me and I was right! They aren't that timid, but since I was sitting outside of the patio, they were a little more cautious.
They aren't boring to watch. One squirrel found a tiny avocado to munch on. Then I saw a couple of youngsters play fighting in the tree. Then one of them got brave and jumped on the feeder right there in front of me. As you can see the squirrels ravage our feeder daily.
Unfortunately the only bird that came to the feeder was a female Cardinal and the squirrels chased her away. I'm still trying to decide if these furry creatures are cute or just plain frightening. I'll let you decide.
