Two squirrels came to a standoff yesterday. It is interesting to be an observer on such occasions. There was definitely an alpha and he wasn't going to give in. It wasn't really much of a skirmish, no ears were nipped, no fur went flying. A little bit of a dosey-doe and as the music of The Good, The Bad and The Ugly resounded in my head, I watched them vie for the few last remnants of seed left in the feeder.
The loser. I threw a few peanuts and some sunflower seeds out to him as a consolation prize....
and promised them I would fill up the feeder first thing tomorrow. In the meantime I am off to get some sleep.
