Life In The Gutter

I’ll clean this shit out if I can take it back to my nest…

This Fall has been full of many mild, sunny days that has really yielded an abundance of squirrel activity.  I can step outside just about any time with my camera and capture one of them doing something.  Thursday, I waiting in my front door for one of them to come scampering out somewhere in my view, when I caught some movement out of my peripheral vision… and not in a place I was expecting!

You act like you’ve never seen a squirrel on someone’s roof before.

I haven’t!  It’s a space I’ve long been waiting to cover on my squirrel photo bingo card.  Up until I had the trees in my yard trimmed last December, my roof was used by squirrels all the time as an overpass from my front yard tree to the backyard oak.  But I was never in a position to get a picture of one of them up there.  So I was really surprised to see this guy had invaded my neighbor’s roof.  Their backyard tree is practically the squirrel projects, and has been for many years, and it must have rooftop access now, as that’s the only way he could have gotten up there…

I wonder if there’s any good shit in here?

Well, would you lookie there!

Squirrels aren’t picky.  They’ll happily scarf up a treat right out of the gutter…

You can eat it, but it tastes like shit!

Hey everyone down there! Come check out this free buffet and salad bar!

I think I have a new favorite restaurant!

Whatever, pal.  Who would have ever thought I’d have to scrounge through the gutter to find another spunky little Saturday Squirrel…

Have a great weekend everyone!

    What cute little rooftop squirrels! Happy Saturday! 🙂

  2. As long as your neighbors never clean their gutters – this little guy and all his mates have a permanent all you can crunch on buffet available 24/7 !!


  3. That ‘guy’ (gal?) is a fat and sassy little one. Obviously he/she has stored up well for the coming winter. Those leaves would make a very fine nest, layers and layers of insulation and probably no drafts coming through either! What great shots too, especially that close up. And a very beautiful tail to wind it all up..

    • Now that the leaves are almost all gone, I can see the squirrel nests in the trees really well. I’m amazed they can work the stuff they scavenge into a nest that will survive the winds… especially this year where it’s been extra windy.

  4. Maybe eating out of the gutter but he’s nicely padded for the winter. 🙂

    “The Squirrel Projects – now with rooftop access!” That’ll bring in the squirrel crowds.

    A room with a view–I’ll bet he can see for miles while he munches his treats!

  10. We have a lot of squirrels too this year. I think they did a lot of Family Living in our oak trees. And the very first place they came to eat was our house. Hmm.
