We are entertained by our squirrel friends who stop by daily to munch birdseed and perform amazing acrobatic feats of bravery and skill. If we are not early enough, they wait patiently on the lip of the shop roof wondering when breakfast will be served.
Since the fires east of Portland, our bird population at the feeder has at least doubled. The squirrels and birds take turns munching as if revolving acts in a play put on for our entertainment.
Early afternoon everyone leaves as our neighbor’s cat does his walk through. Once he leaves, the back yard gets back to a flurry of activity. Squirrels vs birds, birds vs birds, squirrels vs squirrels….the drama is endless.
Wonderful fun. We have trees full of greys in the other side of the river. I’ve often spent an entire afternoon watching their shenanigans.
I must admit, I have learned some of their tail language…..especially when they are yelling at the neighbor’s cat.
