I have a public service announcement:
Today is… (drum roll) Squirrel Appreciation Day. Who knew?
I can’t say that I have ever actually “appreciated” squirrels. Mostly, they annoy me by clearing out our bird feeders in record time. But, I must admit, there have been times that squirrels have been rather entertaining.
So in honor of this special day, I thought I’d share a few of the amusing photos I’ve taken over the years of “our” squirrels.
Must be a mommy-to-be squirrel, gathering material (from my flower planter) for her nest.
I have yet to find a feeder that’s any match for a hungry squirrel. And, seriously: aren’t they ALWAYS hungry?
Do you think that bird bath is large enough to satisfy your thirst?
Obtaining food is apparently good squirrel exercise. S-t-r-e-t-c-h.
And, how can you not just laugh at this? It’s free entertainment from our kitchen window.
Aw, how sweet; all curled up for a nap. Must have finally gotten a tummy full at the bird feeders.
So, even though I can’t say that I appreciate them, the
bird squirrel feeders are full and waiting.
Are you celebrating??
