Squirrel Scrambling for Suet

Charlie does not care that the suet is for woodpeckers. He finds his way to the deck (a full story off the ground) and somehow scales the wall to the suet cage. He can only hang on for a few minutes at a time, but he manages to consume more suet than I would like.  On the other hand, he spills pieces onto the lawn chair and the floor, and the cardinals come and scarf up those tidbits.


  1. my wife calls hese creatures tree rats - very agile beasties they are.

  2. Resourceful little critters, aren't they? Ya gotta admire that. :)

  3. Yes, they are agile and they seem pretty smart.
