Gray Squirrel in the Summer 2013

Summertime and the living was easy

Gray Squirrel inside the feeder~ February 14, 2014

Wintertime....... I should be in Mexico!
This little Gray Squirrel has figured out that the
feeder is a pretty good place 
for a snack and some shelter from the rain!

Have a great weekend!


  1. He's thinking damn, that's why the birds migrate!

  2. Too cute and I'm jealous that you have rain. I want some of that rain.

    Have a fabulous day honey. Big hugs. :)

  3. That squirrel isn't leaving you anytime soon, knows a good thing.

  4. I agree, or anyplace that doesn't have winter like we've been getting!

  5. Squirrels may be pests in many ways - alas, though, it's hard to be mad at that industrious rodent even if he is stealing from the birds.

    Nature made these animals just smart enough to find the easy eats for dinner. Our cat seems to have the same sort of not really working for his food. I'd probably do the same too...

  6. Too cute! And yes, the squirrel will always figure out how to beat the system.

  7. The tail is draped like a rich ladies fur coat.

  8. Great set of images.

  9. He's cute, Kathe. I like him. Our squirrels here are all brown ones, I haven't seen a black or grey one.

  10. Our squirrels are brown during the summer months and grey in winter...

  11. Superb set of photos.

    Hope the weather improves for everyone soon!

  12. We put out bird feeders. T
    the squirrels come for the food. It makes them an easy target. Squirrel stew....yum.

  13. Yes, you should be in Mexico--it's lovely here! (Unfortunately, I'm leaving today.)

    Safe Amid Shadows

  14. Isn't that a bird feeder? And how did this guy get in there?

  15. Great shot of the squirrel and shadows!

    Although I do try to keep them from my bird feeders, I enjoy watching squirrels. When I remember, I put out some corn and bread crusts for them. They can be so fun!
