Stop, thief !

This thief was trying to find a way to crack the safe this weekend outside our window. He worked his way up and down, from top to bottom, trying to get to the treasure. He finally gave up because the only way he could get to the bird feeder was from above and the small limb holding the feeder didn't seem a safe course of action for him.

The squirrels in the New Orleans area seem to be out in large numbers this year.

Great pic today Steve! Love the expression on this guys face. We had a family of these living in our attic at this time last year. They found a crack in the facia and chewed their way it. It was quite the task to get them out of there.
