My Favorite #SquirrelAppeciation video!

Over 50% of the time, after people purchase one of the squirrel-proof feeders here at the East Lansing bird store they come back within the month asking for a feeder to feed the squirrels. People start to feel sorry for the poor, fluffy-tailed, pudgy-wudgy, squirrels. Sometimes they are embarrassed after years of complaining about the wily critters. However, once they purchase the best squirrel-proof feeder from us, they find themselves missing the drama of trying to outwit the squirrels.

Well on January 21, let’s not be embarrassed anymore. That is National Squirrel Appreciation Day and you can celebrate by giving them some Critter food the squirrels love.

I like the squirrels. I have so many in my yard, they pack a pathway in the snow between all the bird feeding stations. More than any kind of wild mammal, they seem comfortable around humans, like outdoor pets. They can be very entertaining too.

And even though I work at a "bird store" I appreciate people that have kind words to share with me about squirrels. That's why one of my favorite videos is one where kind people took the time to not only notice, but help.  A story about a big squirrel and a baby squirrel: https://youtu.be/1jByfWOLmjo
