Regarding said squirrel...what I have seen definitely brightened my day. Well, maybe brightened is a little strong, but definitely amused me in some small way works, too. The squirrel without a tail (kind of reminds me of the phrase, He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named) tried, from what Matt said before I came to the scene, to attack a bird. This bird then turned upon the squirrel and began to chase it. What kind of bird, you say? None other than the most ferocious creature in the Avian kingdom - a robin. Yes, this squirrel without a tail was being chased by a seemingly rabid robin, and the robin was actually one up on the poor rodent.
Imagine begin pelted in an air raid with the sharp pecks of a razor sharp beak, honed to perfection for random situations such as these. The robin was probably blessing the day he thought to start practicing self-defense. The squirrel ran around the grassly knoll a bit and even took cover under the safety of an air conditioning unit. What a shame...what a cowardly squirrel. The whole situation reminded me of the good old sibling rivalry days...without the air raids, of course. All in all, quite the amusement for a lazy Sunday afternoon, wouldn't you say?
