This enterprising little squirrel figured a way into the bird feeder that hangs just outside my window. He somehow scaled the vinyl siding until he could grab onto the screen window, which he treated like a ladder and climbed up easily. Still, I didn't think he was going to make the final leap from the screen to the feeder but landed it, no problem.

I scared him out of the feeder a little while later but he perched himself on the fence with whatever he was able to carry away in his cheeks.

A couple of days before this Kate snapped a picture of a Northern Flicker hanging out in the bird feeder, too. Usually it's all just sparrows and the occasional chickadee out there, so this is what passes for excitement in the ol' back yard.
