Caught him! I've been waiting for him and wondering when he would make his appearance this snowy winter at the feeder. Mr. Squirrel must have had quite a stash hoarded away this winter because he looks very healthy after this long, cold snowy spell we've had. Maybe his cupboards are empty or just maybe the idea of corn appealed to him or maybe the snow was just too deep to scamper across, but he finally made it over from his nest high in the trees.
From the looks of the feeder, it didn't take him long to empty it up and start on the leftover crumbs on the snow below. I look at these photos and think "cute". My hubby looks at them and thinks "dinner". Ever had chicken-fried squirrel? It's pretty good, actually. But I don't think this particular one has to worry about frying pans. Not if I have anything to say about it!
