One Determined Squirrel
Aargh! Freezing rain! The very worst kind of winter weather. I didn't go out except to shovel the walk and move my car. A good day to stay in and make soup. But Mr. Squirrel wanted me to come out and spread some seed for him.
Oh well, let's see what's buried under the snow. Here's a good spot, under the birdfeeder.
Whew! Gotta come up for air!
Gotta go a little deeper.
Wouldn't you know it? Here come those dratted birds. Well, they're not gonna get my seed!
How could I not reward this critter's diligence? So I booted and mittened up and shoveled the space beneath the birdfeeders and spread lots and lots of seed. I hope the birds and squirrels got their fill before all the seed was covered with a thick layer of sleety snow. As I said before: Aaaargh!!!
