        stories about them and how they are vying for power among the creek critters out back.  We did watch Merlie fight off a hawk who was trying to scoop him up. Merlie got downright militant and fought off the hawk.  

        Nothing gets between these critters and the critter feed we give them.   We try to keep them out of the dumpster as how we first got acquainted with them is Merlie jumped in my husband;s wife when he took the garbage now. Now we knock on the lid first to announce ourselves. LOL.  But if we feed them at the opposite end of the property, they tend to stay away from the dumpster. Well, sometimes.

        But our resident Mole...Cole Z Mole is at war with Merlie J Squirrel and they are opposing each other in the next election for Creek Sheriff.  LOL

      crap out of me.  I'm seriously considering living in a tree with my squirrel gun and my chihuahua of course.

        by accident as he was just trying to escape the dumpster and hubbys face was in the way. Now we knock on the lid and make a lot of noise to give them warning and then we lift the lid and then stand back for a while before depositing the trash.

        We have a healthy respect for the critters as they will attack when cornered.  So our Squirrels are tough dudes and I have watched them fight off hawks and once, he fought off an actual bald eagle.
