My garden vandal...................................................... destroyer of bird feeders

Grey Squirrel (Sciurus carolinensis) the bane of my life... 

... I know they look cute but they have cost me a small fortune over the years.

haha! Cute, but very intelligent and relentless. Some would say they are of the devil. :-)

They are cute vandals! They seem to eat more of my bird food than the birds eat. Great shot, have a happy weekend!

It's a constant battle for sure and they usually win! Even though I try to thwart the little buggers, I confess to having a grudging respect for them. Now I have taken to providing corn cobs for them and that keeps them away from the bird feeders somewhat.

They are cute but understand the mess they create.

He's gorgeous... Even if he is a destructer!

I love him! I just baffle my poles, never have a problem!

Yup! I remember my oldest grandson watching my bird feeders with me (about 3 or so) and he said 'grandma, that's not a squirrel, that's a pig'. I had to agree as he had just cleaned out a whole sunflower feeder.

Great capture, but they are real dustbins (and also sadly a bit of invasive species there, from what I understand...)

ladyfi said...

Oh yes --- very cute!

HARLEQUIN said...

gorgeous! Have a great day!

I love your header! I have to say your vandal is cute, but they can be a pain in the...

He is a cute little guy even if he is a vandal. We have Fox squirrels here and they are pretty good in comparison but they love to tease my cats.

Christian Weiß said...

Beautiful photo, he is just a theft of food. By our law means this: inculpable. However, I have also some problems with cute animals eating my new planted trees; sometimes it's no fun.

I still have to just love them! Great capture.
