squirrels

Recommended Posts

I believe that I posted pictures of flying squirrels last year and it seems that they are back this year.  I guess the bird feeder is an easy food source.  I am somewhat surprised how many people are unaware of their presence, although with their nocturnal life they're not often seen.  They appear shorter and stouter than our pine squirrels and have those big eyes.

I also notice that I need to adjust the time set on the camera as it is 12 hours off.

I get them on cam at night also Dave.  Processor hit a nest back in Dec.  when the bar cut thru the hollow nest tree, it was like a squirrel explosion!  Must have been a dozen in there.

That would have been cool to see.  Bad for the squirrels though.

Pretty cool.  Don't think we have any around here, seems like they are supposed to be in this area though.

I Teased him about displacing those poor flying rats!!  He said, "They can fly and find a new den tree, this wood should have been cut  10 years ago anyways"! 

We have been cutting Federal Forest, which has not been properly managed for some time. They are now effectively catching back up.

was having my usual Sunday morning coffee last w.e., watching an early morning fishing show before getting ready for Church... out of my picture window runs a big'ol Gray Squirrel in the yard....yup that one wont be back to chew on wires or try to get into the house.  I had an ENTIRE NEW electric cord destroyed by those rodents this past winter! Chewed all the protected coating off! WHILE being plugged in! Too bad they not bite the live wires!
