This squirrel and I had multiple face-offs the other day over the peanut feeder that keeps the chickadees, nuthatches, and bushtits happy. I don’t mind squirrels snacking on the bird food now and again, but I do object to them eating ALL the peanuts.

Scat! The squirrel food’s hanging on the back fence, yo.

  1. My husband had a cottage where a squirrel would raid the bird feeder every day promptly at 8 am. He tried various things to discourage the squirrel. Finally he put cooking oil on the pole and watched as the squirrel slowly slid down, like a fireman.

    • That is the best image, Barb! Our feeder hangs from a tree limb and I don’t think there’s enough oil in the world to soak the tree. HA! We’ll have to keep battling it out. 🙂
