Staccato Squirrel

Squirrel eating from under bird feeder.

When I was in pre-school, our church music director taught us a song about Staccato Squirrel.  Staccato musical notes are short and separated, so the song mimmicked the quick darting motion of a squirrel.  I used to stare at the squirrels in our yard trying to figure out exactly which one was “Staccato Squirrel”. 

Since I squirrel-proofed my bird feeder, this little guy has to body-slam the feeder in mid-jump, then eat off the ground.
