I love squirrels! They are cute and have those bushy tails. I do not see a problem with having squirrels come to my bird feeder. They have to eat, too! I put out plenty for everybody. I used to go to a park where they would run right up your leg and take a peanut from your hand! I kind of consider squirrels to be my totem animal. I love their liveliness and fun. And I have had them show me very interesting things in nature that I might have missed. Whenever a squirrel is around I pay extra attention.
