Downey has a wild side. We have the opossums, the racoons, and the occasional coyote. And we have a lot of squirrels.
Originally, I tried to set up a bird feeder in my yard. But the squirrels kept chasing the birds away and stealing the food, no matter how inaccessible I thought I was making it. So I finally gave in and just fed the squirrels.
And I have to admit, they're a lot of fun to watch.
