Rodent Fights

Right now there are three squirrels and a rabbit at the bird feeders. The rabbit is staying underneath the small feeder and the squirrels are too, mostly. They occasionally struggle their way up a pole and then spend a minute or so eating. I’ve seen them fall off once or twice, and that pleases me.

Sometimes two squirrels get near each other and they wrestle around a bit. Mostly just jumping and swinging their front paws. The best times are when two squirrels go after the rabbit. They run at it from two directions while the bunny jumps straight up in the air and lands right on top of them. Way to go bunny!

Last night as it was getting dark I saw a different rodent hunting around underneath… A skunk. Oh no, what have I done?
