Seeking Repatriation
Posted By: channeler, 03-22-2008, 11:09 AM

American Grey Squirrel and 2 million mates seeking repatriation. Any takers?

Just joking. Have got quite attached to them. Though I wasn't feeling too charitable when he was gorging himself on all the sunflower seeds in one of my bird feeders this afternoon. So I thought I'd better move the feeder to a more flimsy twig so he wouldn't want to risk it. He had the last laugh. The twig was so flimsy it gave way while I was trying to attach the feeder which ended up falling to the ground emptying all the seeds. Lost most of them. Taken with
K10D and Sigma 70-300 DL Macro with Kenko 1.5x TC.

Paul

300mm+1.5xTC, 1/350th, F5.6 (that's what the camera says but cos of TC probably F8.0), ISO 800, Exp Comp -0.5, Spot metering.

Wow Tom, that is certainly a "caught in the act" shot.

Nice shot Paul but trying to keep them out of the feeders is almost impossible. My father once electrfied a rail around the feeder in such a way that the squirrels would get shocked but the birds being lots lighter wouldn't after a day the critters learned to leap on the roof of the feeder and hang upside down while stuffing their faces.

NaCl(then to add insult to injury they'd pelt us with pine cones from the white pine they hung out in)H2O

That's a great shot Tom. Bet he made short work of that corn. That's a bit of drastic action on your Dad's part NaClH2O. Just shows how savy they are though.

Nah! You can keep them. I was thinking of getting an owl decoy but I think that scares-off the boids too.

Oh, go on JC, I could see if Immigration will let me bring a few more in for you when I (hopefully) come.
