Coo Coo Squirrel

“I am a pigeon and not a squirrel. Coo-coo! I’m a pigeon with a rare fluffy tail disorder. Coo-coo! And did I mention I’m not a squirrel? Coo-coo! Please take me in. I want to carry vital information to spies across enemy lines. I want to poop on things. Coo-coo!”

  4. Squirrel: Okay, I’m a squirrel, but I’m a flying squirrel.

    Pigeon: Then why don’t you have those flap thingies?

    Squirrel: Because the disorder that gave me a fluffy tail relieved me of the flaps too.

    I like how the bird on the ground is looking up at him like, “dude, you are in my spot!”…..

  7. “General, did you own a lovely, plump, speckly pigeon called Speckled Jim, that you hand-reared from a chick, and which was your only childhood friend?”

    A picture of a collection of urban rats. What is the big deal?

    (By the way, squirrels are predators, so the fact that the birds hang around is sort of interesting.)

  23. Black Adder reference for the win!!!!

  24. Mata Hairy queen of the spies infiltrating a nest of enemy.

    @ skippymom: you might wanna refrain, though, if you decide to
    go on an interview for a different job. They might not get it 🙂

  26. Fird Birfle says:

    I didn’t know the source. Thx. 🙂

  27. From wiki: “Squirrels’ diet consists primarily of a wide variety of plant food, including nuts, seeds, conifer cones, fruits, fungi and green vegetation. However some squirrels also consume meat, especially when faced with hunger.[8]”

  28. Larry Sheldon says:

    From looking out the window at the feeding platform off the deck railing, I believe that should end with “especially when faced with an opportunity”.

    The turkeys are the only ones that will chase a squirrel that intrudes, most of the other birds will not come as close as they will with a hawk in the area.

    It is a big platform, sometimes the Grackles will dive in and grab something from the side farthest from a single squirrel and flee.

    We lose more small birds to squirrels than we do to cats, window strikes, and hawks, all combined.

  29. Larry Sheldon says:

    We don’t have pigeons on the deck, but the collared doves are nearly as big–they won’t come near the deck when the squirrels are in attendance.

  30. Get a room, you two! 😉

  31. TrixandSam says:

    Squirrels are territorial, not predatory, hence the defense of ready sources of food, aka the feeding platform in your yard.

  32. Larry Sheldon says:

    The ones here are predatory or predatory opportunists or opportunistic predators.

    We have watched them sneak up, catlike on a bird and take it.

    End of the bird in question and end of discussion for me.
