On The Front Porch Today
This crazy squirrel has been in this position forever under my porch railing. Nope, not dead--just very greedily eating something off the bottom. My first thought was, "Oh no, termites!" My second thought was, "I think ants eat termites, not squirrels--aren't squirrels herbivores--acorns and all?" So, is he eating paint?--licking water off the bottom? I'll go check it out in a second while no one is home to take a picture of me looking under there.
Before he/she got caught:
The very innocent looking after picture:

We had the squirrels eat our deck and they were eating the water sealant that my husband had put on. They will actually eat it up. We were told that it is something they are lacking. Hope this helps.

Wow, that first picture is the funniest thing! I'd love to know what he was eating, if you figure it out :) We actually *feed* the squirrels around here. I have a corn feeder and put out ears of corn for them. Keeps my dog endlessly entertained :)

I'm not much of a fan of squirrels! But maybe I should feed them so they'd stay out of my bird feeders.
