Not a welcome one - notice the birdfeeder is empty. I'm sure this squirrel is the culprit. Of course, a guy's gotta eat, and the buffet outside my window is always open. He seems to coexist fairly peacefully with the titmice and nuthatches. A carolina wren has been visiting fairly often, but I haven't been able to photograph it - it's quite shy.

Terrific shot of the squirrel. First time I ever saw one was in England...not a familiar animal here, so I love this shot to see it 'up close'.

It takes me back 2 years to using my 300mm lens from my sister's living room onto the birdfeeder on the tree by the window. I'd never got that close to the birds & grey squirrels there before. So I have particular appreciation of this guy's tail. Even if he's a villain.
The other remark is that I'm really staggered to see all that snow over there still in this week's pictures. It's now a totally alien phenomenon to me. No wonder you and others needed my spring pics more than I'd realised!
Hold on, it's coming!!xxx

I know many people here complain that the sqirrels eat the bird food but I don't think I would. They are so lovely and very acrobatic. Sadly our native red squirrel has been outnumbered by the grey squirrel.

A beautiful squirrel! I sympathize with you. Our birdfeeder attracts all kinds of robbers, namely rats!
