Feeding the Squirrels


We enjoy feeding the squirrels around our house. 
Next to chipmunks, I think they are the cutest critters.
We feed them corn, peanuts and hickory nuts.
They've really fattened up over the summer. 



Munching on a hickory nut. 


Nibbling on a corn cob. 



Look close and you will see two squirrels in this picture. In addition to the one hanging on the tree, one is on the ground eating the kernels that have fallen onto the ground. 
That's called teamwork.



They are such acrobats! 
And if you notice, squirrel and hummingbird are friends.
 Maybe I should write a picture book about that.


See what I mean about being so cute! 


The bees in our yard also get fed. In this picture, Mr. Bee is covered up in pollen from one of our Rose of Sharon bushes.

Do you feed any critters in your yard?

  1. I know the fattest squirrels I've ever seen are the ones in town that raid the bird feeders. I see yours are trying to keep up with their city folk! - lol

  2. My daughter feeds the birds and the squirrels thank her. We have two cute little chipmunks in our back yard along with wild rabbits.

  3. I feed lots of animals in my yard. I love to watch them all too. I think your idea would make a great book. :)
