THE SQUIRREL WHO WOULDN’T LEAVE – Marilyn Armstrong

Consider this reblog from Serendipity to be this week’s Saturday Squirrel post. My friend Marilyn recently got a feeder specifically for the squirrels to keep them away from her bird feeder, and got these really cool photos of a very hungry and greedy squirrel. I love how fuzzy it is! So imagine the Saturday Squirrel logo here and as always, have a great weekend everyone!

When I bought a second, flat feeder, I knew the squirrels would enjoy it.

You can’t not feed the squirrels unless you live somewhere where there are no squirrels and where might that be? The best you can do is put up feeders which the squirrels won’t destroy.

Let’s hope the bears don’t show up.


So the hanging feeder is metal and guaranteed to survive attacking squirrels and the flat feeder basically says “Come one, come all.”

It took the squirrels about a week to discover the feeders. After that, it took another 48 hours to recognize I am a mere, powerless homeowner. So no matter what I tell them, they don’t have to go.

  1. What wonderful images! Hopefully the birds are cheering their dinner spot is more available.

  2. Great pics! I have 2 flat feeders and love watching the greedy little devils….

  3. Thanks. You know, I was thinking about you when I wrote it ;-D

    • I hear that a lot when someone I know on here has an encounter with a squirrel. I guess there are not many people who have associated themselves as strongly with the critters as I have. I am proud to have raised their awareness among others even just a little bit…

  4. Awwwww. Thank you for sharing this precious little squirrel.

    We don’t have squirrels 🐿 in our yard but people have them in the nearby town in Gillette, WY.

    • I rarely saw squirrels in the neighborhood I grew up in… I think it was too industrial. They’re reasonably plentiful in the part of the city I live in now… and if I ever want nonstop squirrel action, I can always go to the local park.

    Okay, you’ve given me a great idea for offering both seed and acorns to my fuzzy friends.
