It's a Bird, It's a Plane, It's...............................
SUPER SQUIRREL!!! The other morning I looked out the window and saw this gigantic, supersized squirrel sitting on the fence. My first thought was someone's exotic animal had escaped. This is the biggest squirrel I have ever seen. My hubbie and I couldn't figure out what the white was on his face. I pulled out the binoculars and discovered it was just white/gray hair. Maybe he's grandpa of the woods.
We've lived here going on 3 years and this is the first time we have ever seen him.We decided to watch him for a few minutes. Knowing squirrels, we figured some free entertainment was coming up and sure enough. Isn't amazing how they can just shimmy up a tiny metal pole with no problem. Can't you just hear his thoughts? "H'mm I wonder what's in here? Let me see if I can get a closer look."I'd say he got a real close up view. Unfortunately for him our bird feeder is spring loaded. Everytime something heavy gets on it, it pulls the little covering down over the holes.
In the end he gave up and went on to check out the neighbors feeders. He was lots of fun to watch.
