My garden squirrel................................................. stealing the birds peanuts

I hadn't seen a squirrel in my garden for over a week... when all of a sudden two come along at once.
I had filled the log feeder with a mixture of peanuts and suet and one of them was determined to eat the lot.


I had to laugh as every time the squirrel dislodged a peanut from the feeder he would hurl himself into the bushes that border my garden to enjoy his prize in peace... 3 times while I was watching.
 The birds were left to pick up the scraps.

Your Sunday Best

So, that explains the squirrels. You can find them wherever there is food for them. And I can see how determined that one really is. Even if the peanuts were not originally intended for them, regularly fill it up, if only for the reason that you can keep them from intruding your house. :D
