I just had a rather bizarre occurrence. I had a juvie Red-shoulder come sit on the uppermost crossbar of my feeder pole, about 7' off the floor of my deck. Immediately below him was a gray squirrel calmly feeding on spilled seed. I tried to position myself to get a photo, but this spooked the Red-shoulder to fly off. The only response from the squirrel was to briefly dash under the deck, returning to the deck about 30 seconds later.
