Tricky little tree rats! INDEED!

eViL pOp TaRt said...

Squirrels are so agile, and will go to extraordinary lengths to get food from bird feeders. Maybe they should be declared 'Honorary Birds.'

Primitive Stars said...

Oh my, those Squirrels are amazing to watch, entertaining pictures, Francine

Linda R said...

Love these snaps.. Those squirrels sure are fun to watch..

Hugs~

Barb Brookbank said...

Nothing will stop them from getting what they want!

It's pretty hard to thwart these rascals.

Busy Bee Suz said...

What a contortionist!! Too funny.

JM said...

Cute! :-)

Buttons said...

Morning Tex oh boy he is such an acrobat. You make me smile:) :) Hug B

Kate said...

An appealing bird feeder with the small bird decorative touch to it, but the varmint visitor is NOT very appealing. Some of our unwelcome guests knocked off the Cardinal ring on ours. . .nasty little gluttons.

Pom Pom said...

Can you believe those guys? My "squirrel proof" feeder gets a lot of bumps and thumps from the squirrel brigade. Yikes.

DJan said...

What a scamp! Hope he doesn't get so fat he loses his acrobatic ability. :-)

Terri Buster said...

Morning Tex- these squirrels are such imps...this one looks so silly hanging on- but he sure has figured out how to win the seed. What a character!

Beth Edwards said...

they are definitely mad!! ha. ha!!!! ( :

Marit Sønstebø said...

Lovely pictures!

Jan n Jer said...

Laura. M said...

A Kiss.

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

Looks like he's enjoying the buffet!

Karen said...


I gave up trying to keep them off the feeders. It is what it is.

Barbara said...

I wish I was that flexible!

Patty Woodland said...

Where's there's food...

Beth said...

I love watching squirrels. they are such acrobats!

HOOTIN ANNI said...

Fun post!!! The antics of squirrels are such a delight.

ladyfi said...

So agile and cute!

Irma said...

Great to see these squirrel so hang the bird feeder.
I wish you a very good 2014.

Pix Under the Oaks said...

That left back foot seems to be key in this bird seed stealing session!

Miss Val's Creations said...

That naughty little rascal! It is frustrating seeing a squirrel eat all the bird food, but on the other hand it is hysterical!

Brian King said...

Mad skillz, alright! LOL! Good thing that's a sturdy feeder...ol' rat doesn't look like he's missed many meals!

John @ Sinbad and I on the Loose said...

More like encouraging nasty habits.

Lynn said...

delightful no fantastic shots-I'd never noticed the bird decorations on the bird step or pole, cool.

Julia said...

What a little thief, stealing seeds from the little birds.
I saw these peanut feeder for squirrels but I wonder if that would deter them from the bird feeders.
He's got skillz all right...
Hugs,
JB

Farm Girl said...

They are a rodent with many talents.

Nita Davis said...

haha, never underestimate the determination of a squirrel.

Sylvia K said...

He looks like my two squirrels that start out on my window ledge, looking in the window at me at my desk with that questioning "where are the seeds and peanuts" look on their faces!! Fun shots!

SweetMarie said...

Your cutie is quite fluffy! :) I could watch them all day! My Mama squirrel was on top of my garden window yesterday looking for breakfast. :) Smart critters.

don said...

If there's a way, they will figure it out! Nice action set of pictures.

Cheryl @ TFD said...

I always love the squirrel shots. Those ornery little guys make me laugh! Wishing you a very happy New Year and I'm looking forward to another year of great photos from the Run-A-Round Ranch!

Tina Fariss Barbour said...

He looks like a little acrobat! I guess when there's a will, there's a way . . . :-)

catskillblogger said...

They are such agile little creatures.

Sketchbook Wandering said...

They never ever ever cease to amaze me!! Did you ever hear of a book called "Outwitting Squirrels" ? Very fun.

KB Bear said...

Love it. They are little monkeys, aren't they? I once saw a pair of Abert's Squirrels mating while hanging upside down on a tree trunk. It was before my camera days - so no xrated photos!

Linda at To Behold The Beauty said...

I'm smiling. What greedy little acrobats they are.

Debbie said...

Traction, talent and trouble!! They make it look easy!!

HighPlainsFlyFisher said...

Not sure what it is but the squirrel shots almost always make me laugh! He doesn't appear to have missed too many meals , probably keeps you busy filling feeders night and day...

stiefbeen said...

wat zijn ze bijdehand, heel mooi gezien.

Linda said...

They are quite cute through a camera lens. Not so much in my attic at 3am. Have you seen the Squirrel Obstacle Courses on youtube? Very entertaining:)

Leovi said...

Cute and fun, I like this squirrel! Happy 2014! Leovi.

Gail Dixon said...

Darn those dastardly varmints! They drive me nuts, but oh-so-cute!

Nancy J said...

Super photos, did he manage to get some food? Well worth every effort, love that bushy tail wrapped round for balance? Cheers, Jean.

Bev said...

i would say... he is a cute little brat...stealing the birds food:)))

Pantherka said...

They are beautiful pictures, great series.

Happy New Year.

bon bon said...

i can appreciate your squirrels more than my own. ;)

mick said...

Great photos and a very cute squirrel - I wonder how much it actually managed to eat? and I wonder how the birds liked the smell and taste of squirrel all over?

karmnik54 said...

Sprytna:)

Mariette VandenMunckhof-Vedder said...

Dearest Theresa,
You made it too easy for them; providing a bird feeder with squirrel-paw-grips!
Hugs to you and Happy New Year.
Mariette

Ron said...

Must have been a gymnist in a previous life.

joeh said...

A never ending battle, better to just enjoy them.

Annette Mickelson said...

Peek-a-boo!

Andee said...

It is so nice of you to have a squirrel feeder.

Jerry E Beuterbaugh said...

Again, I am still waiting on my pot of squirrel and dumplings.

eileeninmd said...

Tex, I think your squirrels are cuter than the ones I see here. More colorful too, than just plain gray..

Cute photos!
Wishing you all the best in 2014, Happy New Year to you and your family!

wildlifewatcher said...

Hi Theresa, I know the sight oh so well! Squirrels are experts at getting to the tasty bird seed candy. What can one do? I enjoy seeing your pictures. So funny! Have a glorious happy healthy New Year! Don't forget to eat your Black-eyed Peas on the 1st. Ha!

barbara l. hale said...

Acrobatic little bugger! I wish I had a tenth of that agility.

Red said...

Good one. I don't know if you call this good upper body strength or darn good agility.

Cloudia said...

Delightful! Cue the circus music! ♥

Raggedy Creations said...

just imagine what those little claws would feel like sunk into your arm. They are sure talented.

Kathleen Scott said...

His cheeks were puffed FULL of seed by the bottom picture. Fun sequence.

With a little bit of time, squirrels can figure anything out. Probably if Corps of Engineers had been composed of squirrels, Katrina wouldn't have overwhelmed the dikes and dams.

Kathleen Scott said...

And thank you for your comment at Hill Country Mysteries. We seem to have a love of nature in common and both cherish the beauty.

When I was in treatment for breast cancer, sunsets were a daily meditation and escape.

edenhills said...

That is some talent! Very cute little critter.

Giga said...

Kocham sprytne i śliczne wiewiórki.

Becca said...

Yes, mad skills indeed! Funny little boogers…just when I think I've put a bird feeder where they can't get to it….

Hilary said...

They are so incredibly adept. There's a little red squirrel that hangs around here.. no sign of any greys yet.

Michelle said...

You gotta love those squirrels!

Fireblossom said...

LOL @ mad skillz.

Paula said...

So cute and flexible It's hard to be mad at them for eating all the pecans.

Janey and Co. said...

When there is a Will...there is a way!

messymimi said...

We had a pet squirrel once -- and i can attest, they have skills and can get into anything at all!

Debby@Just Breathe said...

When there's a will there's a way!

I seen the word skillz and immediately thought of Lorelei...oh, she cut a shine the night before her surgery...had my daughters and I in tears several times. She was 'dancing'....oh, how I wish you could have seen it. We have no idea where she got the moves...anyway, Sarah says that shes got skillz!
