The little guy earned it

The Douglas Squirrel (Tamiasciurus douglasii) ...

Wrong kind of squirrel, but ain't he cute?

I’ve got a whole bunch of feeders in the back, one of which is a woodpecker block hanging from a telephone wire that runs to the house from a pole at the corner of the lot. I hang it in that inaccessible spot to keep the squirrels off.

Today, though, one of the little buggers was up there. He was hanging by his back legs from the wire, upside-down, nipping seeds off the block from the bottom. He looked so funny I went out for a closer look, whereupon he scampered away–running, upside-down, along the phone line.

Dang, wish I could do that!
