Lucky Squirrel

Every once in a while the kind people at the Veterans Centre at the Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre put up this peanut feeder to give the squirrels a treat. This particular squirrel seems to be the matriarch of the group and she sat there eating away for a long time even though others came along and tried to get one. They had to wait until she finished and left before they could take turns getting a peanut. You can see that her coat is a bit ratty as it is time for the summer coats to start coming in even though it is still a bit cool here.

Very sweet, and I think Peanuts is their middle name!

I think those feeders are designed for birds, but the squirrels comandeer them, of course. If there is food to be had they will find a way to get to it.

What a cute squirrel. I like Jenn's comment, "it's good to see people being kind." Yes it is!

The extra effort may mean the birds have better luck at their feeders. Win win.

Matriarch eh. I see the same thing at my feeder. There is one matriarch squirrel that rules.

Gosh the black squirrels are so unusual looking to me Pat, I guess like our black swans are to others ✨
