I’ve been posting a lot of photos of birds, chipmunks, flowers, and even a deer or two since we moved into our new home. I was asked today if I still saw or photographed squirrels. You may remember that when we lived in the apartment prior to buying our home, squirrels visited my window on a daily basis. Well, I still have squirrels just not as plentiful as before. But the ones that do come to our yard and deck are delightful to watch. So here are some recent photos of our new squirrel friends. Enjoy. πŸ™‚

  1. Whatever you do, don’t feed them.
    They only seem cute.
    They can be very destructive creatures, indoors (in your walls, in your attic, in your cellar) and out.
    Welcome to the joys and trials of being a homeowner.
    And appreciate your squirrel-proof bird feeder.

    1. Years ago we lived in a house that had squirrels in the walls. NOT fun! Here the squirrels have not proven to be much of a problem. They come around maybe once a week, snack on the bird food, then I don’t see them for a while. Eventually I will get a ‘proper’ bird feeder with a ballast to keep squirrels, snakes, etc. out of their food!
      Thanks for stopping by.

  2. I’ve been looking for a recipe for squirrel stew. We have to constantly come up with new methods of keeping them out of the bird feeders. So far gutter material wrapped around the pole of the feeder and sealed off at the top does the most good. Admittedly, though, they are cute when they play.

    1. I know. I’m surprised that the squirrels don’t come around more often because the bird food is so easy to get to. Evidently they have better fare elsewhere. But, as you can see, when they do pay a visit, they feast! Eventually I want to get a bird feeder with a ballast to keep critters away from the birds. Thanks for stopping by, Nancy. Hope all is well in your neck of the woods.

  3. love the one of him flat on his belly, resting. They are an entertaining creature to watch for sure. We don’t see them often on the property as our cat disperses of them! We mostly have the small red ones here.
