Sunday in da Ozarks

ollie...."Hey biped! What do squirrels like to eat?"

biped...."Oh, they like corn, sunflower seeds, peanuts and stolen bird seed."

ollie...."Do they eat metal?"

biped...."No Silly, they don't eat metal."

ollie...."If they don't eat metal, then why is the corner missing on the new bird feeder?"

.....sound of door slamming and giggling kitties...

"annie...."Why does she have the new bird feeder balanced on the pointy end of the rake?"

ollie....."Cuz she's trying to hang it on the squirrel proof bird feeder pole."

annie...."Poor thing is too short to reach the hanger thingie?

ollie...."Yikes, it looks kinda dangerous."

annie...."Thank God she got it hooked. Maybe next time she could get the squirrels to just carry it up there for her."

I needed a good laugh today. You have some goofy squirrels. Squirrels here eat through the hard plastic lids of the garbage cans. When your hungry you do anything to get to that food as your pictures show. Have a great restful Sunday.

The Guy once had a bird feeder he made that had a round lid on the top. The squirrels here were so smart, they took off the lid and crawled down inside the feeder to get the seed. Now, they just sit on the ground and wait for the birds to drop or knock off seeds. They can't get to the feeder now.

Those squirrels are funny, I sit at the back door and watch them through the window.

Well, at least the bird feeder is still standing. I doubt if there is such a thing as a squirrel-proof feeder. They're pretty ingenious.

At least she is trying to take care of the birds~

Oh we love to watch the squirrels run in our back yard, but we've never seen them eat any metal stuffs either...wonder what the birds thought of that?

I LOVE YOU said...
