HUMMINGBIRDS!!!!

I did the Vaseline trick years ago. Funny to watch. Squirrels will overcome it in time.

Seriously, I think we are lucky that squirrels lack opposable thumbs.

Fantastic! I think you will be buying a lot of Vaseline, though, because they don't give up.

What nasty people! I had to stop watching as I felt so bad for the squirrel and so disgusted by the woman's vicious cackle. I've always bought sunflower seeds and peanuts for birds and squirrels; I've learned that many birds, e.g., jays, always give squirrels trouble and take their peanuts.

Squirrels are always welcome at my place.

Squirrels are welcome here too. In the past, I actually gave up feeding the birds because squirrels would destroy every bird feeder. One day I decided to fill a platform feeder just for the squirrels, and now they aren't a problem at the feeders anymore; the squirrels fill up at the platform feeder, so they don't need to get food from the bird feeders at all. Birds are happy, squirrels are happy, human is happy.

As a matter of fact, I enjoy watching the squirrels just as much as watching the birds. Red squirrels are adorable in particular.

Yeah, squirrels were kinda welcome at my place too, until they started chewing on my deck made of that expensive composite material, totally destroyed a Rubbermaid bird feeder, chewed up one of my garden hose sprayers, chewed a vinyl dock cleat into oblivion, and chewed a hole in the house so they could raise a family in the attic. Encouraging squirrels is asking for trouble.

I love squirrels. Started feeding them when my grandaughter was about 2, she named her favorite "lollypop". After that we named them all. There was one with a very short tale like a rabbit and he was "little lolly". When my grandson came along, he decided that all squirrels were "lollies" and we knew them all.

Give the little guy's some food! They're hungry too!
