A GARDEN VISITOR







 A regular visitor to my garden bird feeders...unfortunately the sunflower hearts disappear rather quickly!

Bottom half ?...


The complete article!...



It may be a greedy so and so but you have to admire it's skill and dexterity!

A pain in the bum they are but I find them entertaining.

Sharon Whitley said...

haha we have one of these as a regular visitor to our garden too - they are a joy to watch - it hasn't destroyed any feeders (yet!)

Whaaaay!! This post appeared right at the top of my sidebar Trevor :-) Let's hope all will be well from now on.

Great captures of that cheeky squirrel. I had one visiting my garden regularly at the end of last year and it was the sunflower heart feeder that it went for every time. They sure can eat!

Not my favourite animal, I must confess lol
Good shots though.

Frank said...

Trevor, I have to agree with Adrian.

Nice shots of the 'scavenger'.

The Herald said...

Entertaining up to a point Adrian!...[;o)


Sharon, they're interesting to watch...but expensive to feed..lol...[;o)


Jan, blogger must be behaving itself for once!
I only allow it to feed for a couple of minutes before giving it the hurry up! I guess the clever little sod makes up for it when I'm out!!...[;o)


Aaaahhh!...Keith. how can you not like such cute and cuddly little balls of fun?...[;o)

The Herald said...

Frank, I can tolerate them for a short time as long as they don't outstay their welcome..lol...[;o0

Bob Bushell said...

The Herald said...

Thanks Bob, it should have a very long life...it bloody eats well!!...[;o)

The Herald said...

I don't particulary like squirrels (grey ones) but they do make for interesting watching and a good subject matter for photography, my greyhound hates them with a passion he actively searches for them when we go out walking....he's applying for a job at DEFRA tommorow:)

HI Trevor...Just getting to comments, almost missed yours!!
Had to jack up on corner of the deck yesterday and figure out a way to shore it up!! It is a long story about a re-rod pin, and some womanly wild ideas,but by golly it is fixed!! ; )

I wonder if that squirrel is smart enough to figure out how to fix those sort of issues!! : )
The ones I have here are just destructive, but they look just like yours!!
He sure is a comical fella and they are quite entertaining!! : )!!

Haha! Trevor I was hoping it was one of mine... unfortunately it wasn't.
Wonderful images of a persistent (clever) little monster.

Harley Wilde said...

There a pain in the bum. They are naughty little things. They should go and hunt and find there food but not the feeders.

The Herald said...

They're amusing to watch for a short time Douglas but they do tend to overstay their welcome!...Perhaps I need to get a Greyhound?...[;o)

Hi Grace....Glad you've managed to stop the house from falling over!
You should have let me know you needed something to prop the house up I could have sent you a squirrel or two!!...[;o)

Peter,it gets a couple of minutes on the feeders and then I go into attack mode!...[;o)

Thanks Andrew...do you want another one, or two, for your collection?...[;o)

The Herald said...

A pain in the bum?...yep! that about sums them up Harley. This one also steals the apples I leave out for the birds and buries them in my hanging baskets!...[;o)

Poppy (aka Val) said...

I love squirrels, and I love your photos :)

The Herald said...

I'm not sure that I entirely agree with your sentiments regarding the Squirrels Poppy! Thanks for your kind comment...[;o)
