This one wasn't happy that the other one had appeared.
This one wanted to join in eating the bird seed.
Molly was totally and utterly transfixed by them both.
Finally the one on the fence left, and peace reigned once again, with the squirrel eating all the bird seed and Molly watching it!
The other day we had six turkeys wander through the front garden on their way to roost for the night in the woods. You will only see five in the photo, as one hen bird was just out of the shot. There were five hen birds and one male.

He must be a busy boy and a bird with tons of patience, having to keep five females happy!!!
Did you remember to put your money in your Daily Saving's Pot today?
Today's Money Saving Tip:
Grass clippings contain 80 to 85 percent water and decompose quickly when left on the lawn. The clippings also help keep moisture in the soil longer, reducing the need for frequent watering (saving both water and money)
Up to 25 percent of a lawn's total fertilizer needs can be met if grass cuttings are left on the lawn. The clippings slowly release essential nutrients—nitrogen, potassium, phosphorus, and minor elements — slowly so the lawn is continuously being fertilized. Well-fertilized lawns need less water.
Average lawn mowing time can be reduced by 30 percent when grass cuttings are not bagged.
