Back Yard Squirrel

We have four bird feeders in our back yard.  Each evening Bob takes the bird feeders down and hangs them inside our garage.  Each morning I carry the bird feeders out of the garage and hang them in our back yard.  We hope to keep bear traffic out of our yard by following this routine.

This morning, as I was hanging the bird feeders in our back yard, I noticed a squirrel sitting on the peak of our shed.  We have two feeding stations in our back yard.  The bird feeding station furthest from the house is located past the shed.  As I walked past the shed, carrying one bird feeder, I kept an eye on the squirrel.  It didn’t move.  The squirrel didn’t even pay me any mind, until I left the bird feeding station to return to the garage.  I noticed, then, that the squirrel looked at me.

The second bird feeding station is near our house, about 40 feet from our shed.  I made two trips from the garage to the bird feeding station.  The squirrel didn’t move from its perch on the shed.

I went into the house, changed lenses on my camera and went back outside.  The squirrel was still in the same place.  I turned on my camera and discovered that there was no memory card.  I turned off my camera.  I went back inside the house, ejected the memory card from the computer and inserted it into the camera.  I went back outside.  The squirrel hadn’t moved.  I turned on my camera and changed a few of the settings.  I took a picture of the squirrel from where I was standing.

After taking the initial picture, I began moving toward the shed.

At this point the squirrel got nervous.  It hopped into the tree and took off.

Thank you, squirrel, for providing me content for a blog post 🙂

    W have several of them splayed out on our shed roof like squirrel rugs on cold mornings in order for them to get warm and they also pay no attention to us.. There is one guy that sits on the peak like yours…he looks like he is a weather vane or a hood ornament.. They just don’t fear us..!!
