The Friendly Momma Squirrel

The Friendly Momma Squirrel

Squirrels are not strangers to bird feeders.  If there is free food around they will find it and come back for more.  In all the years I have had bird feeders this is the first year that there is a friendly squirrel at my feeders who is not afraid to ask for food. 

We noticed her different personality earlier this year. Whenever one of us would open the door her head would pop up and she would look at us.  Then she started to come closer to the door if we remained in view.  Of course we enjoyed this unusual behavior so we did not hesitate to throw things out for her whenever she appeared.

Delaware County SquirrelNow when she hears us she does not hesitate to run towards us.  We trained her to not come too close to the door so she does not climb on anything.  She knows we will throw the food down to her at a distance.  She enjoys pizza crusts, waffles, bread, and grapes.

Initially we did not know if she was a boy or a girl.  But her gender was revealed to us after she disappeared from the scene for a few weeks in late spring. During her absence we thought she had been hit by a car or shot by a bb gun.  Then one day she reappeared and it was clear this friendly squirrel was a momma squirrel.

This momma squirrel is a pleasure to watch and interact with as she is an anomaly.  Who knows how long she will be around.  So in the mean time we just marvel at her personality and lack of fear compared to all the other squirrels that fed at the feeders.
