Lincoln is Bullied


Ooh! Look at the stash of sunflower seeds Anneli put out for me today!

Darn it all. There’s that nasty Estelle the Steller’s jay. She’s got quite a beak on her. I’ll just watch her out of the corner of my eye.

I’m being cool, having a drink of water, as if I’m not worried in the slightest. That’s the only way to keep those bullies at bay. You have to pretend they don’t scare you at all.

But oh my gosh. It’s going to be that kind of day. Look who’s hovering around. That Emma looks sweet, but she can be vicious when it comes to us squirrels. Still, I’m not scared of her … very much. I’d just bite her in that cute nose of hers.

Come down here and say that, Lincoln. I dare ya.

Oh no. I see Estelle edging closer … and that mutt is still hovering. Things are just getting a bit too hot around here. Think I’ll have to abandon lunch and come back later.

You had this all to yourself, Lincoln. Time you learned to share!

And don’t stand there gawking at me while I eat or I’ll fly up there and peck you in YOUR nose.

Yikes! It’s getting just a wee tad uncomfy around here. Think it’s time to skedaddle.

“I’ll be back … ya bullies!”

  1. So sweet. Love the photos you posted. I noticed those bullies are arriving around this neighbourhood as well. Fall must be here.

    • They always show up when the hazelnuts are ripe and just general fall harvest things are available. They’re pretty, but they’re a nuisance too. I still like to see them, even if they bully poor Lincoln.


  2. It’s National Bullying Prevention Month. Tell those guys to cool it!

  4. Not being able to quietly eat one’s meal gives one indigestion. Does that happen to squirrels, too? πŸ˜‰

  11. Emma is so beautiful, and that vibrant blue of the jay is the same colour as the blue water dish!
