Squirrels on the Run in Eldersburg

Watching squirrels conquer a bird feeder in Eldersburg.

Sitting here this morning with my cup of tea watching the great outdoors with the cat. Sometimes the squirrels look like a cross between Rocky J. Squirrel and Secret Squirrel (quick who was his sidekick and who was his archenemy?).

I see this squirrel go up a tree and say to myself, no, he didn't do that. So I watched him or her closely the next time up the tree. We have bird feeders that were squirrel proof until today.

There is a feeder on the tree that birds get food from by sitting on the perch. The squirrels are too heavy to make it work. So anyways, the squirrel runs up underneath the feeder stops and bumps it with his heads and the food comes out, which you can see in the image. Then back down the tree to eat what they have gotten out of the feeder.

One time he chased crows away from the food. We have a heated bird bath in front of the window and Sam, the cat sits there and watches the squirrels and birds get a drink. By the way, Secret Squirrel's sidekick was Morocco Mole and the archenemy was Yellow Pinkie.
