#32 – Not Sharing

For all of the hassles winter weather may bring, if there’s one good thing about accumulating snow, it really makes for some great squirrel pictures!

OK, maybe that’s not a worthy justification.  But still, we have today’s pair of squirrels whose antics in the snow four winters ago come in at #32 on my All Time Saturday Squirrel countdown!

Squirrels are pretty greedy and territorial creatures, and if an alpha squirrel gets to a food stash before you, you’re probably going to starve.  Take our poor little guy on the ground there, digging for any bits of seed and corn that may have dropped out of the birdbath that the squirrel on top is busy stuffing his face with.

Oh, that peanut he ha sure looks tasty!

Look! We’re twinsies!

Any chance I could get some of that grub, mister?

Aw, come on! Be a pal!!!

Where’s that little troublemaker at?

I’m keeping my eye on you. And I’m gonna eat all these scraps I dropped!

Fine, be that way. I’ll just lay under the tree over here and die and have my death weigh on your conscience the rest of your life…

Awwww, poor guy.  And he was really cold too!  Check these pics out…


He’s practically shivering here!

Insert squirrel teeth chattering here.

Oh no! He’s going to jump and end it all!

What a big meanie you are!!!

I can’t hear you over all of the crunching of this delicious food I’m eating!

    Great shots – and they do look cold! Did you put out more food? We now have one squirrel that has learned if he climbs the bird feeder in the morning, we will bring him or her out some food.

    • I try not to feed them too much because then they become dependent on the handouts and lose their foraging instincts. I always sprinkle some on the ground when I do put out food anyway, so I’m sure the poor squirrel on the ground is just putting on an act for the benefit of his greedy friend…

        We have enough squirrels that I doubt any are completely dependent on us for food – they stop by at odd hours from their two nests nearby and we put out just enough to keep them from the bird feeders.

  4. Twinsies is right – they even posed in VERY similar positions for Mr. Cameraman. Only difference is one is starving and the other is a selfish pig (err….ummm…squirrel)!


  5. Always thought squirrels had no conscience about their behavior and now I see that is 💯% true.

    Love the “Brrrrrr!!!!” photo. Poor little fellow tugging at your heartstrings.

  7. The red squirrels are more sociable than the gray ones, at least with their own kin. The mom’s bring their babies for a nice meal, though the new feeders aren’t very squirrel friendly. I miss the squirrels, but the doves were wreaking havoc on the whom feeding process. We still have a staggering collection of doves — literally DOZENS of them. Big, fat ones and the gang up on all the other critters. I throw a lot of food on the ground for the squirrels, though. Lots of vegetables and sunflower seeds. So they still come around, but not where I can easily take their pictures.

    That squirrel on the ground needs to round up some mates and come back mob-pawed…

    Awwwww. The photos are beautiful and the squirrels soooooo cute. They need little squirrley boots to keep those toes warm.
