We have had a squirrel feeder in the front yard for several years and it is quite a popular spot in the neighborhood. We will it with blackoil sunflower seeds. Not only do the squirrels feed there but a variety of birds. We've even had raccoons up there scooping out seeds by the handful and stuffing their mouths. Occasionally a deer will stand up on hind legs and manage to get their tongues inside to lick out seeds.
Lately, we've had a lone squirrel come to peek in the back door (where the raccoon comes in the evening looking for handouts). He comes in the morning after the birds have all taken away the bread scraps left out for them. He knows that if he can get out attention we will throw out a handful of treats for him. So far he is the only one that has caught on to this.
We toss him a few nuts from the kitchen. This day he got slivered almonds.
Here he is waiting for the treats to arrive:
Love how he uses his 'hands' to eat:
That one went quick:
Oh, good, there's more:
I like this picture because you can really see the tufts on his ears:
Just a cute pose:
