O.K. Back to the original story...
The thing that keeps us from enjoying our birds are those doggone squirrels. Now, I know, squirrels can be cute and fun to watch as they frollic around. However...my squirrels are not frollicking. They make a bee-line to our bird feeder. And, I wouldn't even mind it if they just stopped for a little snack. But, they don't. They park themselves on the birdfeeder and eat non-stop until they have cleaned us out!
I get very irritated. I knock on the window. I yell at them. I hiss at them. I make quite a fool of myself as I try to get them off the birdfeeder.
There is one squirrel who is very determined and persistent. It doesn't matter how many times I try to scare him away, he keeps coming back. Lately, he has become very bold, and will even give me the stare down. He mocks me.
And, for your possible enjoyment, here is a short video of my big, fat, squirrel!
So far, he is winning the battle! But, the war is not over!
