Hubby read in the Birds and Blooms Magazine to tie a peanut on the end of a pole and "fish" for squirrels.  So he took a bamboo rod, tied twine and a peanut on it and this is what happened.
 He hung the pole out of the window and sure enough, our resident squirrel come a runnin'!
 He lifted right up on the pole just like in the article and slipped off the first try.

Then success!  This time he got it-ha!  He was so much fun to watch.
A few days ago when it was gloomy and raining, the pair that live in our backyard decided to get out of the weather and BOTH got in the birdhouse that they have chewed the opening to fit in!
They are just too funny!
Hope you enjoyed today's squirrel adventure!

Hugs and love,

These pictures are hilarious!! I love watching the antics of the squirrels. Wonder if they remember where they buried all those nuts?

Something didn't work for my computer, so I didn't get to see the squirrel in action, but they are such little monkeys, aren't they?

Wishing you both a blessed Christmas!

I too love squirrels and feed the ones that come into our garden.

I loved the story and pictures of your post.
Happy Christmas Kerrie to both you and your husband.
