We have several feeders just outside of the kitchen table for our winged friends – suet, socks for the finches, and mixed seed for the masses.
The feeders serve as entertainment for the cats, and, I have to admit, me and my camera as well.
Occasionally, the birds are messy. Don’t know if it’s because they are digging for that special seed or what – the birds don’t say much to me.
However, when the birds are messy, someone else is happy – and that’s the squirrels. The birds’ mess means that they don’t have to do much to dine – they just have to show up.
We have two regular squirrel visitors, one has a healthy bushy tail – and has been given the name Ethel. The other one, well, it’s tail is kind of scraggly – proverbially speaking, like someone’s gone at it a bit. So, that’s Fred. If you don’t get the Fred and Ethel reference, you’re showing your youth, or you’ve never seen I Love Lucy…
Wander on into the image galleries on Laughing Frog Images for a while and take a break from reality, and who knows, get something for yourself or for someone who deserves something unique and different.
