#27 – Rooftop Dinner

One square on my squirrel photo bingo card that had long eluded me was “squirrel on a roof.”  The critters can certainly find their way onto a roof, even when it’s not easily accessible via trees like mine has been the past three-plus years.  But despite how many times I saw a squirrel up on the roof, as The Drifters once sang about, I either had no camera or couldn’t get the shot.

That changed on a late Fall afternoon in 2020 when I poked my head out the front door and noticed a squirrel strolling around on my next door neighbor’s roof.  I ran to get the camera, and was delighted that he not only hadn’t already run away…. but he stuck around to give me a whole handful of entertaining photos of his rooftop exploits!  The most interesting of which was scrounging up some dinner out of……. ew…… the leaf-clogged gutters!

Oh boy! Free building materials!

And the view from this balcony is just lovely!

Let’s see if there’s any good shit in here…


You can eat it, but it tastes like shit!

Better go claim my seat on the balcony!

Who says you couldn’t dine out in 2020?

A very happy, if a bit icky squirrel who’s not afraid of a little adventure in dining!  The perfect entry as my 27th favorite Saturday Squirrel of all time….

  2. love it… my granny said when I’m still that lazy in school I once will eat the grass from the gutter… well… it seems the squirrel likes it, so it isn’t bad LOL

    What a clever little squirrel! He also makes a point about cleaning gutters! You can thank him for that!

  4. Moochers are the same whether it’s up on the roof or at Golden Corral. They don’t want to give up their seats.

    AWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW, that’s awesome!

  6. A clogged gutter is not just like visiting the local burger joint for a snack but much like Home Depot where building materials are abundant!
