Return of the Squirrel

A couple of interesting developments with our daring squirrel raider.

Yesterday I replenished the birds' nut feeder and J set up the camera and tripod. Unfortunately we missed the daring deed, when the squirrel released the nuts, but J got a couple of pictures of the creature tucking in.

I wonder about its methodology. Does it shin up the pole, or does it dangle from a tree? The full length picture shows the bird feeder so you can figure it out.

Then last night, the lid of the bird feeder disappeared. Did the squirrel drag it away, determined to remove this blockage to its bounty? Or was it a hungry fox looking for a nibble?

Answers on a postcard.

I'm going out to look for the lid, as I'd like to fill up the bird feeder again and see what happens (Groundhog Day Part 3.)
