Rocky has been barking at the back door, We are trying to cure or cut down on the barking/baying and couldn't figure out why he was barking or what was setting him off.... Finally our question was answered.
This little guy climbed the trees, walked across a very very thin wire and cliimbed down to the Thistle feeder and stuffed himself.
Hubby saw him, and promptly put a baffle above the feeder which has successfully stopped the squirrels for years.
As you can see it didn't stop him!!
We have 5 feeders holding different kinds of seeds plus a humming bird feeder and we gets lots and lots of different animals, however, we are going to have to relocate this feeder or spend a small fortune on thistle seed for a very enterprising chipmunk!!
lol...sorry I love squirrels (and the like). My hairdresser lives in an apt & she had to call maint one day because she saw a squirrel trapped in someone else's apartment running back and forth in the balcony door. Boy...the things they get into :)
The little critter sure is patient. Now that we have figured out what makes Rocky bark, we have pretty much stopped it. We think he just wanted us to "see" the chipmunk. Glad we did. I never even knew they could climb trees.....
bd, I think that one and the one of him looking at the fire are two of my favorites. I would LOVE to know what goes on in an animals mind. You know they have to think, at least a little. Wonder if they dream about being people lol
