Wilbur ..... what are you doing?

Wilbur is my squirrel. Well he isn't really my squirrel. There are several fun loving squirrels that eat my 'bird food'. Of course if you know me well, you know that I don't actually feed the birds. I do like the birds, but most of them are sparrows or doves. Nothing real exciting to watch. But...those squirrels are so funny. I am anxiously waiting on the black squirrels to come to our neighborhood. I have dubbed them all to have the name Wilbur. One year we had 3 young squirrels. I named them Huey, Dewey and Louie. They do the such funny things. We bought the bouncy squirrel feeder several years ago. Even the Chipmunks jump up and eat the corn. 'Wilbur' was jumping up to the feeder this morning. He was doing a very good job of it. Here is the video to watch of Wilbur jumping and below is a photo of him on the feeder.

Such fun & simple pleasures! I like Wilbur.

We had a garage lizard once that I named LiZorro. He was so-o-o-o fast (thus the name), but he got quite accustomed to us. That is, until I cleaned/hosed out the garage. He had a tantrum and left, never to be seen again.

I have a special place in my heart for squirrels. I'm glad you let them eat the bird food!

Your pictures are GREAT. You are a very talented lady. Someday I'll have you teach me your tricks of photography. Dewey feeds the birds and squirrels also. What fun to watch.
Love & hugs,
