LOL, I know exactly what you mean!

I have 5 of these cute little critters taking over the feeder tower out back. They even managed to drag the suet feeder down and halfway across the yard before abandoning it because they couldn't get it open!

Guess it's time to switch from regular sunflower seeds to safflower seeds. They don't care for safflower, or so I have been told... we'll see!

Becca said...

Uh oh! Bad squirrel...but oh so cute!

Sandra said...

I am trying not to laugh, truly I am!!! that last shot is hilarious, tummy is full, feeder is empty, just sprawl out and wait for Tex to fill the feeder again.

Fireblossom said...

That last shot looks like, "Who? Me???" LOL.

Happy Easter!

Jill said...

Good to the last drop...errrr...seed!

Haha! I hope I'll be able stretch out and relax like that after I've committed the perfect crime!

Posie Patchwork said...

Look at those cute little claws, all ready to scratch your EYES out. Love Posie

Daffycat said...

LOL I was going to say exactly what Sandra said above but she beat me to it!

Pix at Under the Oaks said...

His very own feeder Tex! :)

Betty Roan said...

LOL Mr. Squirrel wore himself out trying to lick the bowl. Cute series.

Judy said...

I totally love that last shot! That's how I felt last night after working in the yard all day.

rkbsnana said...

Exactly!

Lynne said...

I wonder how he would feel after a hard boiled egg with the shell on . . . (no, I wouldn't do that but they are certainly pesty little guys!).

I think he looks like the same guy who visited last week.

The chipmunks around here drive us CRAZZZZY . . .

Bob Bushell said...

It is a lovable varmint, beautiful photos.

Charade said...

Love the shot of that smug old fat cat out on the limb. Mocking you, isn't he?

Bob Bushell said...

I live in an area of land, it was a haven for wildlife, including the squirrels, who came and helped itself to nuts. But, it was about time that they thought it would be alright to build houses on that area. That was the end of squirrels, birds, trees............. just the CATS.

Tanna at The Brick Street Bungalow said...

Smorgasborg (sp?). That guy has it made!! LOL!

Donna OShaughnessy said...

The weird thing is,,,most of those squirrels are ten times smarter than those we've elected into our own government

Wayne (Woody), whatever said...

It's job is to keep you in shape by continually keeping the feeders filled.

I like the last shot, all full, time for a nap.

Michaele said...

Is there anything that birds like and squirrels don't?
Enjoy your day : )

Debbie said...

the title is perfect, no words are necessary!!

he's "winning" Theresa!! big time!!

Barb said...

Ha! I feel your pain!

Jerry said...

Great shots. Yes, they are entertaining and a pain in equal measure over here too!

Mike said...

The vermin are leaving the ankle breaking holes all over my yard. They rarely run from me, anymore. They know I'll leave 'em be. Then one day...POW! Right in the kisser! ;)

黄清华 Wong Ching Wah said...

Playful squirrel

Thanks for sharing;o)

Happy Easter****

Jan n Jer said...

Free food...they drive me crazy when they raid the bird feeder!!!

Andrew said...

I bought a new feeder similar to your green one a cople of weeks ago... The squirrels have pulled the one of the plastic perches off.
I only noticed yesterday when I was refilling it.. seed poured out of the whole so now it can only be half filled.

You have to admire their talents.

JM said...

Great captures of this thief-acrobat! :-)

barbara l. hale said...

Thanks for the chuckle! Got my day off to a jolly start.

DJan said...

You will never outwit a squirrel. I've learned that over the years now. LOVE your pictures! Happy Easter to you, too.

bailey-road.com said...

I love that little furry hand reaching around the feeder.

quies said...

LOL. Lovely shots of these entertaining creatures.

Saun said...

Bad little squirrel great shots! Happy Easter

Kjell T. Evensen said...

That guy put on quite a show for the photographer. I'm on my way home to mine. Great shots and happy easter.

Donna said...

He sure is a determined little booger! Hahaha!!!!

Sinbad and I on the Loose said...

Easy target. Whoops it is Easter Sunday. Pretend I didn't say that.

Nancy Claeys said...

That little rascal -- you have the patience of Job, I tell ya! :)

Paula said...

Looks like your squirrels are having a nice Easter. A good one to you too.

Tammy said...

He's lucky he's cute:) He looks like he has no clue that food wasn't put out just for him!

Millie said...

That does look like hard work and he needs a rest. :-)

don said...

The persistence of these little critters is amazing. I thoroughly enjoyed this series. My favorites are the squirrel "hand" reaching around the feeder and his impish look when fully exposed.

eileeninmd said...

Ha! Hang your bird feeder up and the squirrels will come. Great captures, Hope you are having a Happy Easter!

wildlifewatcher said...

Hi TexWisGirl, Happy Easter! The squirrel is fat and happy but it does dent the pocketbook. Ha! Great pictures!

Sylvia K said...

That's one hard working little guy! I always love your squirrels!! Hope your Easter is going well!

Sylvia

Randy said...

It's the Easter Squirrel!

Ron said...

Krishna said...

Beautiful capture

A Quiet Corner said...

So funny that you posted this today...the Pres is outside attempting to put yet another baffle on one of the feeder poles to deter some relatives of your guy (s)...:)JP

Rizalenio said...

You photographed the squirrel very sharply. :)

Hilke Breder said...

I have the perfect corrective: a dog who loves hunting squirrels. Still i feel sorry for the ones he catches. Great series, Theresa!

Betty Manousos@ CUT and DRY said...

ah, what a cute little guy!


thanks for adding some cuteness to my day.

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Gosh---those darn critters!!!! They are so acrobatic aren't they????

Hope you have a great Easter Day, Theresa.
Hugs,
Betsy

Susan said...

Little stinkers!

Cher' Shots said...

As soon as I saw the first pic and especially the fourth pic just screamed "Can you see me now?" Hide and seek squirrel!
Happy Easter from the U.P.

Angela Häring-Christen said...

Cute gymnast and climber :-)
Nice shots!

SweetMarie said...

You know I LOVE these pics! Look at all the entertainment squirrels give us. :) I love the new header and pics. :)
Happy Easter Theresa! Hugs to you and all your fur babies!

Farm Girl said...

He is very cute. :)

Gary said...

Great post, but where are all the dogs?? Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.

Jerry said...

Thanks for your comment I did think I had disabled my word verification - hopefully I've done it properly this time!

Karen said...

He sure is persistent!

Mama Zen said...

These are hilarious!

Patty Woodland said...

They are so clever....

ellen abbott said...

I have a 5 gallon bucket of left over pecans (from year before last) that I put out in the yard and the squirrels are having a field day. I'm finding broken shells and pecans everywhere.

Ellie said...

He is a sneaky wee devil isn't he - but still very cute :))

Faye said...

Squirrel 1, TexWisGirl 0!!

Patrice said...

Great photos as usual.

Lindsjö taxar said...

Happier Than a Pig in Mud said...

I get such a kick out of them laying on the branch like that! Happy Easter:@)

Texan said...

Nice squirrel feeder ... tee hee couldn't help myself had to say it LOL

Linda said...

They're amazing little acrobats, aren't they? And so cute, too. Great photos.

Eyeliquor said...

My Pal :)

Kathy said...

Varmint, yes. Cute, yes. Entertaining, yes. A pest around bird feeders, yes!

Mariette VandenMunckhof-Vedder said...

Dearest Theresa,

Hope you had a blessed Easter Sunday! Your squirrel looks like it had more than its share... ha-ha.
Love,

Mariette

Kerry said...

Is there ANY possible body position that you haven't managed to capture in a squirrel? I bet there is and can't wait to see it!

Grandma Barb's This and That said...

They are determined little buggers.

rainfield61 said...

It is a squirrel feeder.

sharon said...

There is something about a bird feeder and a squirrel. just can't resist it can they?

Michelle said...

Sneaky little devil!

Barb said...

He looks sated - wouldn't be surprised if he burped.

Linda said...

There appears to be absolutely nothing you can do to keep these critters out of the bird feeders! But they are so cute, and you have to admire their resourcefulness!

Honest Abe said...

The squirrels took down my Nijer Thistle seed sock today.

latebloomerbuds said...

Ooh T, you've been busy! New header, new pic of you...looks great. And, my fav whistler is in the header!!! Damn squirrel! Margie

Michelle Renee said...

Lol. I know I shouldn't laugh, but I can't help it. I know they're a nuisance, but the entertainment value is priceless! ;)

Mom of M&Ms said...

oh my goodness that is so very very funny.... bought wet my pants...

and look at your sexy legs on that photo of you ...You go girl!!!!!

Gone Country said...

He looks too fat to fit in the holes anymore, heehee!

Stewart M said...

Hi there - I think that a "squirrel proof feeder" is an oxymoron! If it can be made by us, then a squirrel will find away to get into it!

Much like possums here - but they find a way into your roof space!

Cheers - Stewart M - Australia

Catherine said...

*giggle* ~ so naughty but so cute!
xo Catherine

Liz said...

Cheeky little critter!! He is cute though... love the last shot!

Chris said...

Hi there, just stopping by to say how delightful your blog is. Thanks so much for sharing. I have recently found your blog and am now following you, and will visit often. Please stop by my blog and perhaps you would like to follow me also. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Chris

Bird," Go away, you big monster."

I just came back from walk and saw a houseowner had covered his fig tree with a net. Inside were some silver eye birds. I was waiting to get some photos.

An elderly gentleman came and spoke with me. he said the trouble is, the birds don't eat one fruit, it makes numerous holes.

Then I went and saw a wild fig tree, not many fruits but one one bird.

Hope the photos will turn out good, so I can post it.

Rose said...

this makes me want to laugh out loud!

ladyfi said...

Oh, too cute! Oops, I mean ... naughty squirrel. But they've got to eat too, right?

Charlotte said...

Squirrels are so bad to be so cute.

Janie said...

I feel your pain, sigh.
But they are cute, and differnt from mine.
Should we trade?

de engineur said...

This guy reminds me of the yet-to-be-captured big mouse coming in and out of our house.

This squirrel is of course far more cute.

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Can't outsmart the little imps!

CameraCruise said...

Great shots, love the third one.

Joe said...

Wish I could do that.

Candy C. said...

I love seein' them thievin' varmints! :)
Great new header too!

Jeevan said...

That's pretty and cute capture on the active squirrel. Is it bird feeder or squirrel feeder?

Paula said...

*hehe* He's BAAAA-ACK! lol

bon bon said...

"wait, didn't i knock this down for easier access?"

Amila Kanchana said...

I feel sorry for the poor beggar!:-)

Tina@WhatWeKeep said...

Hey T~
Hope you had a great weekend with all your critters. You know this one is my favorite. But then I've always had a thing for bad boys. haha
Love your new header- look at you out in the sunshine!

heyBJK said...

I was already laughing, of course, but the last photo clinched it! :-)

pattisjarrett said...

That is so cute. One of its relatives didn't make it across the street and ended up in our driveway. :( And I see you've been doing some blog redecorating! Nice.

Sandy said...

I know they are a pain, but they are so darn cute!

Rohrerbot said...

He needed to take a break from trying to knock it down. Your squirrels crack me up:)

Hilary said...

Snort! They're such persistent little farts, eh? :)

parker said...

Nice look to the new header pic.
Let the squirrel wars begin!

sonia a. mascaro said...

Great photos!

SquirrelQueen said...

That is cute. Looks like it might be a mommy squirrel, bet she is hungry if she's feeding little ones.

MarieElizabeth said...

Well, points for creativity.

Angela said...

LOL! He worked so hard he had to take a break! lol

Joop Zand said...

Very nice shots Theresa....i like them.

Greetings, Joop

Maura @ Lilac Lane Cottage said...

Is this a sigh because you wish you were that acrobatic or that the squirrel is eating all your sunflower seeds? :)

Christian said...

Every morning, without fail, I am greeted with a squirrel and NO birds!

Marie said...

This squirrel just cracks me up!

Lindy MacDuff said...

I know...I just give up any more and let them eat. It doesn't matter that I put out corn, apples, or oranges for the squirrels. They still want the suet and seed.

Great captures by the way!
