Shooting Varmints with a Canon

Here, under the bird feeder, we find the not-so-elusive Notabird

Begone yon pest before I find me another 'N'

Y'all don't eat them? They are really tasty slow cooked in a pressure cooker all day with gravy!

Jan said...

It's hard to imagine a cuter animal than a squirrel. Or a more obnoxious one.

Rev. Paul said...

+1 to Jan. :)

Linda said...

Sharp squirrel....sharp shots too! We don't have them...I've always thought I'd like having them around but after listening to all the people that want rid of the critter's I'll pass.

Terry and Linda said...

We only have ground squirrels, they sure can make a mess. They are a different color than yours...more the color of well...dirt! HA


Susan said...

Such adorable photos. Your title made me laugh out loud, but I don't understand what "another N" is.

SCmomma, have eaten them usually fried or in stew. No my favorite though. I kinda prefer bunny...or bambi...lol

Jan this one, although unwelcome, is hilarious. He is carrying locust pods back up the tree where they have fallen to the ground...despite there being thousands still hanging up there for him

Rev. Paul yup!

Linda, thanks. we usually only have them up in the woods but this little bugger is really brave. Guess he hasn't met any cats yet.

Linda, this is about the dullest colored red squirrel I have ever seen. Usually they are a bit brighter

Susan, thanks. Sorry about the 'N' thing. What I meant is that if you added an 'N' to the word, Canon, you would end up with cannon, another tool with which to shoot him. lol

I've got one of these red squirrels excavating a nest in the remnants of a rotting sliver maple trunk - right behind the house. Ruh-roh. (Ya gotta admit - they're adorable)

Cathy, he is cute and perky, but I really wish the cats would pay him a visit. I hate to have them so close to the house. lol
