Nine squirrels by happypat

Nine squirrels

The squirrels love our bird table!
We have lots of trees specially in the front garden so they all hang out there & have meals on tap!
We have never seen as many as nine before....more squirrels than birds sometimes!

I thought squirrels were supposed to hibernate?

Harry took this photo on his iPhone this morning through the window which isn’t that clean with all the wind & rain there has been. Over edited to try & pick the little thieves out!

Three good things:
1. Lovely pictures of the holiday makers meeting up with bride & groom in Christchurch.
2. Harry & I have been sorting our clothes, what to take with us...a bit more complicated this time with two lots of wedding clothes to take.
3. A bright sunny day....better than we had hoped! ....spoke too soon it’s rainy & blowing a gale all of a sudden!
Wow, that’s a lot...

That has to be a record! I was trying to get rid of a bag of stale peanuts in the shell one time and started putting them on the bird feeder. I think the local squirrels told their friends, who told their friends, ha! Exciting times for you, two weddings on another continent, oh my!

Ooh ! Pat I thought it was a scene from an open air zoo -- ha ha ! You do have a lot of the little critters to entertain you while helping themselves to the bird food ! Love to see their antics but fortunately we have only an occasional visitor to our garden - I think Alfie must deter them !!
Exciting time ahead as you sort out your luggage for your hols and weddings !

Cute to see Squirrel Nutkin and all his friends! You can't wear the same outfit to 2 weddings?

@louannwarren Doesn’t take them long to twig on....too lazy to hunt for their own!

@julzmaioro Aren’t they just....Harry likes them though....he knows them by their markings. Does cost us in food though!

@beryl Send Alfie here for his summer holidays! Seriously I’m not too keen on the little beggars but cant chase them off! They will go hungry when we go away!

Oh my, you have a lot of squirrels. I get so excited when I see one at our feeder - it's a relatively rare occurrence. However, we have the reds, so I guess there are a lot less of them. This is a very cute image!

@jamibann Well I would get very excited seeing a beautiful red one on the bird table!

That's quite a party going on!!!
Hope the packing went well.
I always take too much but last trip to Melbourne I said I would only take one change as I often find something to buy at destination!!😄😄😄😄
