His boldness probably explains yesterday's mystery, to whit: why was the bird feeder no longer on its hook outside my study window and instead was lying on the conservatory roof below? I had assumed that either a) the birds had been particularly quarrelsome and dislodged it or b) being empty and therefore light it had blown off during the high winds the other night. Now I suspect that a squirrel was somehow involved. :)
Here he seems to be pondering how to approach the birds' peanut feeder. Note the "respectful paws" as Cute Overload puts it.
Then, despite the human with camera watching from the bedroom window, the squirrel decides to move across the roof.
Our house wall, with its gravel-dashed walls provides easy footing for a squirrel. Here he ponders an alternative route to the peanuts.
When I last saw him, he was climbing over the neighbours trellis trying to get at their bird feeders.
