Squirrel Diner

I had a lovely visitor on the back porch this morning. Mr Squirrel showed absolutely no fear of me as he dined on the seeds in the bird feeder.

I just love our back yard! So many squirrels, chipmunks, and birds of every size, shape, and description. I am such a very lucky man, aren’t I?


About Ol' Big Jim

Ol' Big Jim, has been a storekeeper, an embalmer, a hospital orderly, a medical biller, and through it all, a teller of tall tales. Many of his stories, like his first book, New Yesterdays, are set in his hometown of Piedmont, Alabama. For seven years, he lived in the oldest continuously inhabited city in the world, Amman, Jordan where he spends his time trying to visit each one of the thousands of Ammani coffee shops and scribbling in his ever-present notebook. These days, you can find him back stateside, still filling notebooks.

  1. I initially misread your headline and thought you were going to share a recipe. Ha ha ha. Glad to see you have so many friends in the yard.

    I gotta go along with John. I misread the title. (Knowing your humor, I’m not too sure it wasn’t intentional!) And by the way, you could have gone all day without mentioning squirrel dumplings! LOL, good pictures, Jim. And yes, you are a lucky guy.

  3. Great back yard! Squirrels can get pretty friendly, almost brazen at times.

  4. If a picture is worth a thousand words, then you have 10,000 words! And these pictures do tell just how these squirrels operate. They love to get into bird feeders. I never found a good way to keep them out and I guess you just decided to let them have what they wanted, too.

      Thank you for visiting, and for your kind words! Yes, we decided to just let the squirrels and chipmunks have their way with the feeder. It’s lovely to watch them enjoying it!

    Beautiful. It is a pleasure to watch them. We have them here too and they come to eat pieces of chapati we put out for them.
