Whodunnit? My World Tuesday

Mayhem in the Garden!

Birdbath broken, St. Francis of Assisi on his head.  Who is the culprit?  Probably not the raccoons.  They definitely have a rap sheet here, but I don't think it was them -- it happened in the middle of the day.

Number One Suspect, with four gray accomplices right behind. 
For days, the four young gray squirrels have chased this albino relentlessly, non-stop.  The pitter patter of their little feet even continued on the roof long after dark! 
 
Apparently they have worked out something and the peaceable kingdom has returned to the garden.  And once again my birdfeeders are equal opportunity diners for all  squirrels, gray or white.


One last photo: Squirrel levitating.

  1. Bullies always pick on someone who is just a little different from the rest.

  3. I would not be surprised if it were the squirrels. They are trouble makers. I would think the albino squirrel is rare. Thanks for sharing, have a happy week!

  4. Aww … that is a shame about the St. Francis statue. Maybe you can glue back its head! I find raccoons out and about day or night so they might have been the culprits.

  6. What little scamps! I do hope it's not permanent damage. I bet it's a treat to see them chasing about!

  10. Very well written. I think I would prefer squirrels in the back yard to rabbits.

  12. I have NEVER seen an albino squirrel. That is just so amazing and fun to see! It'd be great if he found a home in your backyard so you could keep watch over him.
