Recently I was watching a television show with my nine-year-old about squirrels. He loves all the nature shows on Nat Geo Wild. They were discussing how squirrels will go to great lengths to get bird seed out of bird feeders. The show featured an acrobatic squirrel who kept on stealing bird seed. One gentleman enjoyed watching the birds go to his flat top open bird feeder, but the squirrels always figured out how to climb the pole to get to the bird seed. He tried different types of poles, but they always figured out how to get to the top. He even greased the pole with vegetable oil, but the squirrels didn’t give up. Eventually they managed to rub all the vegetable oil off of the pole and made it to the top.
Squirrels are funny little creatures. We have a ton of gray tree squirrels out here in Chicago. A family of them has taken residence in our back yard. I also have two bird feeders, one in the back yard and one in the front. They always figure out a way to get to the bird seed.
This female gray squirrel visited our bird feeder last night and then again early this morning. I captured a few photos of her upside down sneaking some bird seeds. A rabbit was in the grass below. I don’t think the squirrel bothered him.
Do you have squirrels in your back yard?
