Someone has to be in charge of making sure that peanuts left out for the birds are of the highest quality. They must have a crisp shell and a strong peanut smell.
Normally this job is filled by humans, but I found a self-appointed inspector on the job yesterday. Suspicious, wouldn’t you agree?
Poor squirrel kept trying to count them all, but then they’d run around and change places and he’d start counting all over again. I could hear their little giggles right through my closed window!
IMAGINE YOUR FRUSTRATION UPON COMING HOME AND FINDING THAT YOUR PORRIDGE HAD BEEN SAMPLED.
IMAGINE THIS CHIPMUNKS FRUSTRATION UPON COMING HOME AND FINDING THAT THE NICE JUICY BERRIES IT HAD LEFT HANGING IN A SECRET SPOT, HAD BEEN COMPLETELY EATEN!
COULD THIS BE THE WORK OF “SUMO-GOLDILOCKS?”
JUST BECAUSE WE ARE TRYING TO PREVENT THE PINE SQUIRRELS FROM DECORATING THEIR APARTMENTS IN OUR ATTIC, THAT DOESN’T MEAN I’M ANTI-CHIPMUNK.
THIS LITTLE ONE WOULDN’T EVEN LET ME SEE IT’S FACE. I’M PRETTY SURE THEY ARE ALL MAD AT ME AND ARE HIDING FROM THE CAMERA.
I’M GOING TO KEEP TRYING TO GET SOME PICTURES, BUT I DON’T HOLD OUT MUCH HOPE. PERHAPS IF I BUILT A CONDOMINIUM IN THE WOODS FOR THE PINE SQUIRRELS AND LET THE CHIPMUNKS HAVE SOME INPUT ON THE LANDSCAPING, THINGS WOULD GO BACK TO NORMAL.
I’M LOSING THE BATTLE. ALL SORTS OF NINJA ANIMALS HAVE COME TO CLAIM THE BIRD FEEDING AREA AS THEIR OWN.
THIS CUTE LITTLE FAMILY OF DETERMINED RACCOONS PERFORM ALL KINDS OF STUNTS IN ORDER TO ACQUIRE AND INHALE WHATEVER BIRDSEED HAS BEEN LEFT BY THE OTHER ANIMALS. THE LITTLE GUYS DON’T QUITE KNOW WHAT TO DO WITH A PEANUT IN THE SHELL YET, SO THEY JUST KIND OF PUSH THEM AROUND WITH THEIR PAWS.
THE CHIPMUNKS ARE WRESTLING WITH EACH OTHER OVER THE FOOD AND DIGGING HOLES ALL OVER THE PLACE.
THE PINE SQUIRRELS ARE SMACKING AROUND THE LARGE GRAY AND FOX SQUIRRELS.
THE BIRDS ARE PRETTY KIND TO EACH OTHER. THEY SEEM TO HAVE THE BEST MANNERS.
AT NIGHT WE HEAR THE NINJA PINE SQUIRREL FAMILY RUNNING BACK AND FORTH SOMEWHERE IN THE ROOF/CEILING AREA!!!
IT’S ONLY A MATTER OF TIME UNTIL THEY WORK THEIR WAY DOWN INSIDE THE CHIMNEY AND SIT AT THE TABLE TO WATCH US EAT. I SHOULD PROBABLY GO SHOPPING FOR SOME TINY LITTLE FORKS, KNIVES AND PLATES.
