Yard Critter of the Week

My mom's least favorite critter.

The Eastern Gray Squirrel.

Shown here eating the flying squirrel platform feeder.*

Perhaps the wood of the feeder absorbs something of the peanut butter we put on it. A residue the squirrel finds tasty and delicious.

Otherwise it is just an squirrel that thinks it's a termite.


* One of the many reasons mom is so un-enamored of these beasties is that they used to chew through the wiring of her car, while leaving dad's car, parted adjacent in the same driveway, untouched (un-toothed?). So they do have some peculiar eating habits.
