We seem to have a flying squirrel with a voracious appetite that has been making nightly visits to our . . .
. . . peanut butter feeder and . . .
. . . suet ball.
If you have ever seen a flying squirrel up close, you know they are adorable, velvety soft-looking little creatures with huge eyes. But this one is starting to border on the destructive side.
As you may note from the above picture of our peanut butter log feeder, he's doing a good job of starting to eat the wood from around the holes that I fill with peanut butter.
What was once a perfectly round suet ball surrounded by a string net bag suffered an awful beating last night.
We've seen flying squirrels on the peanut butter feeder at night and the seed feeding platform outside the window of Papa Pea's office upstairs so we know they are around, and we've always been happy to provide them with their nocturnal goodies.
But this guy has got to learn some manners and maybe knock on a window to let us know he's especially hungry and wants a refill of his snacks. Like pronto!
