I sat here eating and one of my relatives came to get a share and I hissed, barked, screeched, and even spat at them and they finally left me to eat by myself. This went on with a few other relatives of mine. They do this everytime I try to eat in peace all alone. This photo shows me finally getting some peace to eat all alone. This feeder is one of various ones of all types for the critters at ther Nature Center I visit. The path is not accesible but it sits in front of a large area ion the indoor area to sit and watch the critters feed and or fight. Do your squirrels in your area hiss, bark and even spit at their relatives? HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB!!~

My squirrel friend around here love to chase the white winged dove away from the feeder so it can eat. If the squirrel gets upset it loves to chatter and it can chatter really loud.

They have taken over my feeder out front, chasing all the birds from it except the big black birds. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB!!~

We used to have some squirrels come into our yard and feed off of the bird feeder but I have not seen them for a long time. They hadn't made noises to us though, that I am aware of.

I only see one squirrel in the garden, at the bird feeders. The birds don't bother him but he winds his body around the feeder so they can't get at him or the nuts. There are two feeders and the birds just opt for the other one. I can't say I blame them! lol. Brightest Blessings.

The squirrels around here are usually up in the trees. I have seen 3 or 4 of them up there at a time, but I have never seen them hiss, bark, or spit at each other. They might just be too high up for me to notice though.
