jaytkay: There's a big knothole in the tree in front of my place. I threw some peanuts in there one day.

So now, this one particular squirrel SPRINTS for the tree when she hears the gate in the morning,

And if there are no peanuts, she blocks the sidewalk like this:

And I go back and fetch some peanuts for her.

CSB time!

There's a couple of squirrels I am now feeding. They spotted the peanuts I was leaving out on a side table for the crows and jays for when I'm not there to feed them. They get to these peanuts on my second floor balcony by flinging themselves from the retaining wall of the parking area below onto the side of the building that has a stucco-like covering. They then crawl, sideways mind you, across the face of the apartment building to reach my balcony. I always know when they are out there because of the thump-thump of them leaping the last few feet from the wall to my wrought iron railing.

The other morning the squirrel was taking turns hopping from the chair onto the table where the peanuts are, in between the jay and crows lining up on the railing to take their turns. Both of our cats get a nice show!

People act surprised but this is Indiana.  Squirrels may as well be our official state animal.  I've been to almost half of the states in our fine nation and no other state has people that are as fascinated/excited by squirrels than Indiana.  Hell I'm even ashamed myself to admit I've been in the presence of others in a different state and seen a squirrel and commented on it and had people look at me funny and say "....so?"

Nobody gets squirrels like we do.
