Four Legged Birds

Most of the leaves have fallen from the trees and the traffic at my bird feeders is increasing. The squirrels are among my most faithful customers. They irritate me sometimes because they take more than their share, but squirrels get hungry too.

Pretty cute until they move in with you. Then they are tree rats.

Great photograph.

Obviously the term "rats" applies to what people consider vermin be it the squirrel- or pigeon-type.
However, I watched a programme last night where a bunch of intrepid "celebrities" who are doing jungle daring-do actually cooked and ate a rat. They commented it tasted like chicken!

The little varmints mess with my bird feeders as well. Over the years I have neutralized a few of the most greedy offenders.
Later in the winter, it's the Starlings that I have to keep at bay.

Squirrels are super sneaky and they always seem to be starving! Cute little ones though.
