Scribbles and Scrambles ~ Squirrel Circus...

Rob set up a bird feeding station this winter. And man, that sucker gets some action. Sometimes not a feathery friend is in sight, others it's a scene from the movie, The Birds.  

However, this particular expose with the grainy pictures etc. was shot undercover during a bold assault on the BIRD smorgasbord. 

Rob assumed that the tipped, emptied feeder issues were the work of a few raccoons he's seen gorging on the spilled seeds after dark. 

Today, I noticed a swinging bird feeder in my peripheral vision. And what I saw was a circus squirrel working his magic. He hung by two paws and scarfed all he could get into his greedy mouth. Scaling the smooth metal bar was easy peasy and he had access to three different "plates"  At one point there was a Cedar Waxwing and male Cardinal waiting in line for the buffet. 

It's a cold winter and the little sucker worked for it. Sigh. Guess we'll just feed the neighborhood.
