After my next door neighbors (blessedly) moved out five years ago, I took it upon myself the following summer to confiscate the birdbath that had been sitting in their front yard. It wasn’t like anyone else was using it. Not long after I committed that misdemeanor, I featured my first ever squirrel photo shoot on this blog using the birdbath as a centerpiece… a post so old, that I was still two weeks away from officially launching my Saturday Squirrel series! While it’s inspired a few other SS posts along the way, the reality is that I don’t often get the chance to film my squirrels partaking of the bath’s typically dry confines…
Well, this guy a few weeks ago was certainly looking to take a refreshing dip in my secondhand birdbath… though he didn’t exactly find what he was looking for after he made the leap.
Sorry little guy. The birdbath is only properly filled when it rains. But at least thanks to that powerwashing tongue, you look all spiffy and clean for your appearance as this week’s Saturday Squirrel!
Grab a towel and have a great weekend everyone!
