repost from August 2005....

A sneaky squirrel, taking the roundabout route to the bird feeder. When we moved to Illinois (at the end of the 80’s), it amazed me that there were virtually no squirrels. At least compared to Pittsburgh or Washington, DC. Rabbits out the ears, but not many squirrels. Well, I planted as many trees as I could fit on our 0.30 acre, and 15 years later, we have squirrels. Squirrels that eat the food I put out for the birds. GRRRRRRR….

i LOVE my squirrels!

for 14 years i lived where there were no squirrels, just pigeons and sparrows and grackles! i missed the squirrels. now i have tons of squirrels and birds and all sorts of critters and they all get fed. the seed that the squirrels scatter the birds get. besides, if you watch, squirrels show up on a pretty regular schedule. so i just put out seed at different times and different locations. the squirrels are fun to watch. : )
