Garden wildlife feeding.............................................. and also causing havoc

I guess everyone knows which little creature is causing mayhem in my garden.

...and stretch!  

 ...now he's spotted the apple feeder...

...which gets the rough treatment and discarded after the apple has been removed. 

 ...he even knows I'm watching...

Look!!... he's even smiling!!

I topped up the fat ball feeders and stayed in the garden watching for a while.

The House Sparrows were glad to be rid of the squirrel...... for now.

Blackbirds usually just fly up and grab what they can... this female must have been watching the sparrows...

...she went back to collecting grubs after a while.

This Woodpigeon must also have been watching the small birds acrobatics. 

"I'm sure I could give it a try"

"If I just hold on tight...

 ...and gently lean forward"

"hey! look at me... there's nothing to it"

"I know... I will be back later on to finish them off"

Your backyard is worth watching a lot more than TV although the Queen's Jubilee had great pomp and circumstance.
Squirrels can be so sneaky.

Andrew, I reckon 'your' Squirrel must have gone to the same finishing school as 'mine', they seem to be working from the same script!...lol

Great post...[;o)

Great variety of birds you've got. Love those squirrel shots. Never would have thought they would eat apples. I guess they'll eat just about anything.

Sandra from Madsnapper sent me the link to this post. She knew I would love it! I do love the entire post! The adorable squirrel is my favorite! If you get a chance please stop by and take a look at my Mama Mallard post and my Mama Squirrel posts. Hope you're having a great weekend!

haha! These are awesome shots, Andrew! Squirrels are squirrels no matter where they are! The pigeon is beautiful! Really nice photos.

That's a great set of pictures Andrew, I love squirrels, red or grey, it's just a shame the two aren't compatible. A hybrid wouldn't be a bad idea, I wonder whether any boffin's had a go ?
Canadian squirrels are completely fearless, they'll perform tricks for the camera.
