And the Music Goes ‘Round and ‘Round…

13 Mar

Never a camera.

One of our squirrels managed to squeeze between the wires on the globe feeder, and was merrily chomping away when we went out to fill all the feeders this morning. As soon as he saw us, the critter began madly dashing around the inside of the feeder, like a gerbil on a wheel, but sideways instead of upright. All this spinning made the chain twist up until it had gone as far was it could go, and then the globe began spinning clockwise, while the squirrel continued racing counter-clockwise. (See photos of the feeder on February 22nd.)

He finally managed to get himself disentangled from the wires and sort of flew out onto the ground, with a serious stagger.  Can birds laugh?
