I’m sure you already know how crazy we are about birds and animals here at Genuine Kentucky. Heck, I’m even wild about Lady Bugs and spiders. Yes, spiders… I think they’re pretty cool.
Naturally, we have bird feeders, bird baths bird houses, and squirrel feeders all over our yard. My youngest son-in-law has built most of our feeders and houses. In fact he built the squirrel feeder you see being used in the picture above. As you can tell, one chubby little squirrel was enjoying the buffet as one patiently waited in line below the feeder.
Yesterday morning, we had the most squirrels I’ve ever seen in our front yard at once (7). I think they were as excited over the (FINALLY) nice weather as the rest of us.
They were absolutely everywhere I looked. While the two above were at this particular feeder, one was climbing a pole robbing a couple of bird feeders, one was drinking water from a rabbit’s hat (statue where I always pour fresh water for birds and squirrels), one was on one of our porches (not sure why, though – maybe she wanted in to fix herself a sandwich?), and a couple of others were running amok looking for the best point of attack.
The pictures aren’t as clear as they could be because I was taking the pictures from a distance – from inside the house. You can still tell what cute little guys these are.
