Thieving Squirrels

When I noticed that my 3 potted blueberry bushes were full of ripe berries, I suspected that the squirrels would soon shift their attention from the bird feeders they usually focus on (as previously described here) to the blueberry pots.

Sure enough, I caught one in the act soon afterward.

Too bad he isn't willing to work for his berries by pulling some of the weeds between the paving stones.  After his snack, he returned to the bird feeder for his main meal.  Is he smirking?

And he chewed me out from the safety of the tree when I sent him scattering.

But I got the last word.


  1. Brazen little bast***s. That bowl of blueberries would have gone nicely on my cereal this morning. I was out of them at home and even the dog was disappointed as I usual bounce a few off the kitchen floor for him every day. Time for a trip to the grocery store.

  2. Squirrels gotta eat. I think it was quite kind of him to save you so many. At least you don't have them doing drag races on a rock roof at 5:50 A.M.
