BUTT ... Mr.
squirrel not only has an extremely hard head, he is a lot smarter than
I gave him credit for.
He sneaks back
up to the now vacant side of the feeder and pokes his head up to see
where miss Gertie is. She, feeling good about herself, is now munching
away where Mr. squirrel was before - she is facing the other way. Now
Mr. squirrel launches the "squirrel sneak attack".
He pokes his
head up a couple of more times to make sure Gertie is still facing the
wrong way ... and judge distance I guess. He then launches himself
across the feeder, in about one tenth of a second, and bites missy on
the butt. Mr squirrel has a bite like a pit bull and Gertie decides to come back another day.
We are not sure who actually won :)
