This energetic and excitable little fellow comes regularly to our back yard. And he invited all his friends, too. Thee are about 6 of them now. They are a lot of fun to watch as they are quick and agile and move up and down the tree and hang upside down from branches. They eat the spruce seeds and take the sunflower seeds from the feeder and jam them into cracks in the tree trunk. They always remember where they have stashed the seeds and are quite acrobatic in their attempts to dislodge the seeds.
My cat can watch them for hours (as can I, to be honest). We call this Reality TV for cats - there are 3 channels, the bird channel, the squirrel channel, and the rabbit channel. The bird channel is by far the most fun.
