Red Squirrel

On a lark, I hung up one of those seed bells to see what sort of birds we could attract this spring.

So far, we have had a good share of black-eyed juncos.  But our most entertaining guest was a fearless red squirrel that managed to pull down the bell and feast for a few days on the resulting rain of seeds.
To the victor goes the spoils.
There's little debate on how cute this fellow is.
As cute as any hamster or gerbil.

  1. Cute but annoying! We feed the birds all winter and it is a constant struggle to keep the red, black and grey squirrels from taking more than their fair share of the seeds!
