There was a string with some peanuts hanging outside the window. It was real fun to see how he carefully climbed up and down the string picking the peanuts one by one.

I have a HUGE "Squirrel proof" peanut feeder, it needs re-filling every 2 weeks, I reckon the tree rats eat 2/3rds of the food in it. One of the many reasons I really don't like these. (Yeah, I know, Mr Grumpy of Reading here)

@CElliottUK: Hehe, I'm surprised they give anyone else a change to eat from your feeder... :)

Squirrels are very adept at finding ways to get to the peanuts, aren't they? Great in B&W

@Ruthiebear: They really are!
Thank you!
