Bill The Acrobatic Squirrel

I walked into the kitchen this afternoon and saw the strangest thing. An upside down squirrel eating seed from my bird feeder. He didn't seem to mind a bit that I was staring at him, so I got my camera and captured this little guy's daring-do. I don't mind squirrels eating the food, and actually put out a plate of their own chow--I guess he preferred eating at a more vertical shaped restaurant.

Nifty... I actually watched this on YOU TUBE as well. Love the music. I wonder if you played the music for Bill the squirrel, if he would do a different act.

squirrels are evil, evil beings who not only raid bird feeders, but pillage newly-planted tulip beds, as well.

That's squirrels for you! *LOL* When I was a kid we used to feed the squirrels that "lived" next to our house. At first they were thankful for whatever we gave them, but very soon they turned into spoiled wee divas that would only accept my mother's cinnamon buns! :) One of them even tried to climb up one of my legs when I wasn't fast enough with the food!! I wasn't so hot on squirrels for a long time after that ;) But I do love the wee fiends :)
