She Saw A Squirrel Try To Tackle Her Bird Feeder… Thank Goodness She Had Her Camera!

1207

As someone from the country, I know that squirrels +birdseed = bad news. Very cute but very determined, squirrels can be a bit of a backyard pest — as Susan fromDowneast Thunder Farm quickly learned!

Not long after hanging her lovely new bird feeder, Susan was visited by a fluffy friend with nothing but birdseed on the brain! But, like King Tantalus and those tasty apples, the birdseed proved to be just out of reach for this little scoundrel!

 

Mere moments after the feeder is secured, the hungry culprit hits the scene!

1

Don’t be fooled by her cute little face! This squirrel is on the prowl!

2

The inspection begins! The criminal eyes all the delicious seeds within…

3

In one brave stretch, she makes her first move…

4

…only to fail oh-so-miserably!

5

But she won’t be stopped that easily! Round 2!

6

Another daring leap?! It’s sure to work this time!

7

Aaaaaahhhhh so close!

8

You’ve stumped her this time, bird feeder! But tomorrow is another day…
