Acrobatic Squirrel – #WordlessWednesday with #linky on a Tuesday

Acrobatic Squirrel

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.

    That squirrel is huge! We don’t see many here at our house, but my Mom gets them. They do the exact same thing…steal all the bird food. 🙂

    That is a crafty, hungry squirrel. We have them around here too. I don’t have a bird feeder at the moment, so I don’t really pay much attention to them. 🙂

    That squirrel really wants what you have there. Crazy squirrel.

    This is so cool! I always love to watch them.They are very active!

  • Debbie W. , August 23, 2016

    Yes we have squirrels and they hang like yours and they eat every single pecan off our big tree every year.

  • Mandy , August 24, 2016

    I feel like I’ve seen something similar to this story on tv before. Squirrels can be awfully determined when they want to be! 🙂

    I love squirrels, they are so adorable with their bushy tails. We have smaller red squirrels here in Canada that are amazing!

    They are always so cute and so fast! We dont have squirrels and I wish we do as what we have outside our terrace are seagulls who steal our trash!
