The last week has been very gray and foggy with intermittent drizzle. I have been entertained by two little squirrels that live in a pine tree in our front yard.
Because of the thick canopy of branches of the tree and the warmer temps the snow has melted here. The squirrels are rooting under the bird feeder for sunflower seeds.
They don't mind me standing in the window. But seem to saying 'Hey Lady where's the rest of the stash?
Squirrels don't hibernate and they forage for food all winter. Often we watch them taking peanuts and burying them all over this particular flower bed when they aren't eating them.
While the partner is down below finding his own morsels.
Later I went out into the back yard because Shelka was whining to go out. On our side fence was Mr. Squirrel and straight ahead was a neighbor cat slunk down on the top of the fence just waiting to pounce. I ran out to scare the cat away, then got the camera. By then Mr Squirrel had run up onto the roof top to get away.
Phew! We have two cats too and I am always watchful when the squirrels are out.
What wild life is in your neck of the woods?
