The animal residents of the boardwalk provide lots of entertainment as we walk there every day. On a recent windy day a bird feeder containing sunflower seeds hung from a branch swaying in the breeze.
The squirrel stretched down from a nearby branch and grasped the feeder as it swayed in the wind.
It held onto the upper branch with its hind paws as it scooped up as many seeds as it could handle.
Drawing itself back onto the the upper branch, it sat and nibbled the seeds, then repeated the acrobatics for more.
In spite of tremendous, the little animal persevered. I admire its determination.
I live on the east coast of Canada, on Prince Edward Island. Prior to my life here, I lived on the eastern most island of Canada, an island in the North Atlantic called Newfoundland. I am an islander in every sense.
