It didn't take long and then I saw it. I couldn't believe my eyes! A squirrel had found its way in to our yard and was eating all the bird seed that had fallen to the ground.
I'm sure you're wondering at this point why this nature excitement from my backyard is post worthy... you see, I knew no one would believe me unless I got a picture of it... We have a two foot tall plastic mesh barrier that goes around the yard to keep out the rattle snakes (reference this post for my nightmare). The little bugger squirrel is apparently a circus performer... I was waiting for him to pull out the balance bar and walk the tight rope!
So help me out here... should I be worried about these squirrels in my yard? Are they going to be mischievious or a welcome addition of more wildlife?
