Presenting…Skwerl Cirque Du Soleil

(We’re using Courtney’s spelling of “Skwerl” to stay consistent with the video title.)

“Starring Mr. & Mrs. Nutty. Filmed on location in Portland, OR. For me, almost as great as the Skwerl Acrobatics is hearing the hearty laughter in the background from my Dad, Aunt & Uncle.” -Video by Courtney B.

    Skwerls are so clever! I swear the only reason to *try* and prevent skwerls from getting bird seed is because of the ensuing hilarity. 😂

  2. Cirque Du Skwerl-eh?

    We used to have a skwerl we ended up naming Porky — he started as a slim young thing, but soon fattened to truly impressive proportions — living in our yard, who not only could do truly astonishing acrobatics to get into the allegedly skwerl-proof bird feeder — like there really is such a thing, hah! — but also loved to come tap on the glass door to the deck and drive our silly doggie crazy. Their antics were endlessly entertaining. I love watching skwerls!

  4. Skwerltographer! LOL

    Pro Tip: Turn your iPhone sideways when shooting video. You’re welcome.

  6. I watch them all the time, it is quite entertaining.

    Look up “squirrel obstacle course daylight robbery” to see just how agile – and intelligent- squirrels can be.
