My stepmother found out that a feeder is just a squirrel buffet. But, hey, everybody's got to eat. Dogs are banned from my complex so our resident squirrel roams unmolested. Both images are wonderful close ups. I hope the squirrels have learned to stay away from Ralph.
Great capture, if that is through a dirty window I hate to think what mine are. Interesting with some of these grey's they have a touch of red in them yet the grey squirrels have driven out the red's in many parts of the UK. Some gardeners don't like them when they start to hide their nuts in a well manicured lawn or steal fruits even under nets etc. I do love to watch them, such acrobats. Nothing keeps a squirrel from their nuts.
They are pests at the feeders, but I've got my feeders baffled so they can't reach them, all but one; the birds are messy enough eaters that there's enough fallout to support several familes of squirrels in my garden. It drives the dog crazy, since she can't catch them, and they taunt her with that constantly, watching her approach and waiting until the last minute to race up the trees.
