Sandra said...

paint some red coats on the ducks and a blue one on the squirrel and we have a battle field.. can you tell we just watched the mini series Sons of Liberty.

Anvilcloud said...

Strength in numbers.

Phil Slade said...

Do I detect a little aggression from those normally peace loving Whistlers?

Jacquelineand.... said...

Whistler Westside Story... the newest musical on Broadway!

Gosia k said...

Your whistlers must sing We are the champions...

Molly TheWally said...

Oh my. "All Eyez on Me" vs. "Who let the Whistlers Out."

KaHolly said...

I guess they tol him!

Maggid said...

Looks like the squirrel tried to simply turn its back - brave little creature . . i wonder if it tried crazy action before vacating . . golly, i like those ducks . . . bet you can imagine lots of little people imitating 'whistling ducks' at story time . . we have quacking ducks . . and whistling ducks in our songs . . of course, to a child mind it is natural to also add tap dancing ducks and chef ducks cooking grilled cheese sandwiches . . . (giggle)

Vanessa Morgan said...

Poor squirrel. And you were lucky to be able to take your pictures at the right time. Have a lovely weekend.

William Kendall said...

I suppose they're like our mallards and Canada geese....they get along, for the most part.

Linda Kay said...

He stayed as long as he could, until they just got too close. Wonder what they were all after?

Kathy said...

They're probably used to each other by now. Nobody looks too scared.

Karen S. said...

Mr. Squirrel, we think you must move on! Hehehe!

Irma said...

Stunning images of the Squirrel and the Whistlers.

joeh said...

They are usually so comical, amazing how a duck can take such an obviously hostile posture.

Those squirrels don't back down easily.

Small City Scenes said...

I think they are telling him where to go--if you know what I mean. LOL

Looks like the ducks are giving the squirrel "what for". That's a saying I've heard.

Rick Watson said...

Looks like they were tellin' that squirrel the news :)

Paul said...

Talk about peer pressure, those Whistlers do a great group stink eye, the bushy tailed tree rat never stood a chance!

Ms. A said...

Ha! The squirrels around here don't even seem phased by the birds, however, I don't have whistlers taking charge.

orchid Miyako said...

Dearest Theresa; Look at all the Whistlers' eyes :-) I would have been scared and the tail of Fox Squirrel speaks itself that he was defeated. Sweet pictures, Dear friend♡♡♡
