I had a lot of fun with our resident squirrel, but I don't think the squirrel was amused as I was.
As I passed by the kitchen window I noticed said creature, let's name it Sajiv, meaning lively, about ready to climb into the bird feeder. I tapped on the window and Sajiv ran up into the tree, so I stood where Sajiv would not see me, waiting for him to come back down.
When he cautiously came creeping down the tree towards the feeder, I would once again tap on the window. *chuckle* He would freeze in his tracks and you could almost read his mind, "will I run or stay?" he decided to scuttle off again.
Sajiv, giving me the 'is she serious, look' before streaking up into the high branches of the tree once again.I continued to play this game with Sajiv for quite some time, tapping on the window every time he would get near the feeder. I am sure the squirrel was becoming quite frustrated being scared off every time it tried to get to the seeds, but I could not resist watching the look on Sajiv's face every time I tapped on the window.
