The Imposter

Hmmm, I wonder if this is grape jelly or purple soup?
Did I hear something down there?
Don’t mind me, I’m the jelly inspector, just here to do a taste test to make sure yours is edible.
Who do you think you’re fooling? If you’re an inspector you’d be wearing a name’d have a badge you could show me, get back!

I have to quit listening to these bird conversations, I get so stressed!

Who has the right of way?

Some days I have to remember to look out the other windows in the house.

On this particular afternoon, there was a traffic jam developing in the front yard.

I’m wondering if we’ll have to install traffic lights, I’m not sure how effective that would be but I’m sure it would work better than me standing out there with a flag and a whistle.

The squirrel and the birdfeeder

I’ve grown kind of fond of my daily squirrel visitor. He has a lot of personality and makes me laugh at least once each time he visits.

This is a short little video of my cute little friend, made from a few clips that I put together. 


I think the chipmunk is going to have a much easier time eating it’s lunch, there’s no shell on it! Adorable chipmunk wmSquirrel with nut wm 0974

This is my little friend from the other day, he was so excited to have found this nut that he took it and ran far away into the woods with it. Then  he ran out of the woods, back to where he found the nut and ate it there.


It won’t be long.

Squirrel hanging around wm

I have a new visitor, it’s a “he”, and he visits everyday. I think he’s rather young because he doesn’t seem to have a lot of squirrel experience. He’s not very good at knowing what to do once he’s climbed up and reached the bird feeder…should he hang upside down? Should he shake it around and see if any falls out? Is there a spot for inserting a quarter and waiting for the seed to be dispensed?

I have a sneaking suspicion that it won’t take him very long to figure out how to use his acrobatic skills to drop down to the feeders and stuff his little tummy.
