I believe this one has not been in AM3 yet. This is a memory from Leixlip, one of the wonderful garden squirrels showing how to eat the bird food.

Ruthiebear from Titusville, NJ, United States

This shows how determined these squirrels are!

@Ruthiebear: Yep, first he climbed up the wall and went on the roof, from there he tried to come down that metallic hanger and gave up as it was too hard. Then he climbed down the wall and just jumped from the wall to just above the pepper and after the whole feeder thing had stopped moving and rattling he just climbed up the string and ate. :)

Superb capture, how did you hide it away for so long?

@Curly: Thank you. I don't really know why this hasn't been here before... Maybe there was something more important going on around then. :)
