Squirrel Watch

Ellroon Rants from the Rookery of has picked some assistance from Susie of Suburban Guerrilla in watching the evil rodents with a link to a story on their research efforts: Squirrels Outwit Trees*.

I’m highly skeptical of reports of Sqrats.

[* – This should not be confused with outwitting the Shrubbery.]

They’re after us, I tells ya! Gotta get more proof, but they’re watching me…..

Like Republicans they are easily distracted with bribes – try a handful of sunflower seeds.

Peanuts work really well, too. 🙂

I get a feeling that you are not quite as negative about the impact of the squirrel problem as some of the rest of us, Anya.

Well, so far I haven’t been karate chopped by a secret ninja squirrel, although I’m sure they’re going to be up here making rude faces at the in-again-out-again kitty.

However, if I get in good with ’em, I’ll have my own private army.

I saw that your visitor returned.

Don’t trust them. They will promise anything for a peanut, but watch your back if they see the bag inside the house.

My first squirrel-queen, Digger, spotted peanuts just inside the door one summer day, and attempted to chew through the screen to get at them. Now, I store my peanuts in a Tupperware container, and I’m careful to keep it out of view at the other end of the apartment.

They are crafty and determined beasties who will go to amazing lengths to raid a bird feeder, even as they are surrounded by pecans, oaks and pines that would keep them supplied with a much higher quality of food.
