hand feeding wild squirrels

Post by bass hertz » Sun Apr 18, 2010 3:55 am

Working on this now. I can get the little animal to get within 2 feet of me. Patience is needed I guess. Any tips?

The other day I was standing with this guy in the park who was hand feeding them, I was quite impressed.. They normally just run away.

I will give it a go next time im there, it will be like snow white.

I have my squirrels taking food directly from my hands now..
BUT - I want to warn you..

One of my squirrels is real fiesty and she likes to smack the food from my hands...
Claws are like razors - she cuts me bad everytime...

I'm now afraid to feed any of them that way - cause I'm nervous.


That's why they run from each other like that..frikken..razor shank

haha, had a crew of squirrel friends years ago.

started by throwing balled up bread bits off my balcony down to them then after a while moved down to ground level and would toss bread to them. after a couple weeks theyd grab it from my fingers. the og was named bread squirrel, named a few others but they werent as cool as bread squirrel.

I can do it on Robins, but I you have to know the same robin for like 1 whole year to do as well as me and my wild-pet robin, his name's Rob. he likes seed and bread.

Victory!

I got the squirrel to finally take a couple nuts from my hands. I just hope this don't ruin him. I'd hate to think he will starve to death by depending on me to feed him everyday.

One of my best pleasures. I love squirrels. They eat anything over here, though, the fat bastards.
