As squirrel go, he is just adorable. I hung that bird feeder there with the expectation that it would be out of reach for all but fly up patrons. It is as far away from the deck railing as it can be while still allowing me the tippy-toed ability to refill as needed.
From what I can see this little guy's life consists entirely of monitoring the white beast's activities in anticipation of neglectful moments which might allow stealthy positioning on the railing nearest to the suspended buffet. Once correctly positioned, and that takes some doing, this little scoundrel will take a leap of faith. He has recently worked out all the details. The feeder is frequently emptied.
