I spy squirrel

air raiding the birdfeeder

deftly stealing food

upside down daredevil

effortless execution.

      So true, in a previous house we had squirrels come into they garden, not only did they eat the seed put out for the birds they destroyed two bird feeders doing it.

        I have other squirrel poems--if I find them. This is an ongoing battle.
