Last Sunday we walked at Morrel Sanctuary.
As we started up the path, we got to watch a small drama being played out on the side of a red Cedar. Please excuse the blurriness of some of the pictures – things were happening fast!
Through out the Sanctuary there are wooden feeding stations, filled with seeds and grains for the birds and squirrels.
On this Sunday and at this station a squirrel, one of the little brown squirrels, was in charge.
As we watched the squirrel chased off a Stellar Jay. The Jay just dropped down to the basement to help himself to the seeds on the ground.
And then a Varied Thrush had gall enough to land on top of the feeder. The squirrel made short work of him.
The Squirrel remained victorious, until I got too close.
