Nature in a suburban backyard
Gee, he's kinda the Fat Albert of squirrels, isn't he? Well, good for him . . . he'll be nice and cozy all winter.
Is he fluffy to stay warm or is he very well fed?Love your header!
I first noticed this fellow November 9th. He may have been around before, and certainly was boss at the bird feeder. He was already good and big - and obviously well fed. As for the one I called Ms.Fuzzytail - I first saw her September 20th. She is just as big. At the time she was either expecting or was nursing young ones. I have not seen her since.
What a BIG squirrel...It must be cold!! Great photo.
Someone else names their wild critters, too!Ever cute! Thanks for following!
That is one fat squirrel. What a great picture of him.
Chloe and crew are beautiful.Napoleon is huge!!
He sure is a biggun!!
and Napoleon is probably a good name if he's as pushy as the other squirrels I've met :O)
I think maybe you're going to have to put this one on a diet in the New Year. Happy 2011 to you!
Well his fur looks remarkably well maintained and his eyes are alert which is a very good sign ... I think he will offer you much amusement in the forthcoming months.Thank you for the information on the bird food. I must admit I have been tempted by this sort of food before. My last purchase was robin food which contained dehydrated mealworms this was for two reasons - firstly, I liked the look of the feed as there was a wide variety of seeds, etc in it and secondly, we used to have a wonderful robin that came into the garden and sang his heart away day after day for several years then all of a sudden we didn't see any robins. There were blackbirds, starlings, sparrows, finches, tits and doves with jackdaws, magpies and crows and occasional treecreepers, wrens, etc but no sign of a robin. Then like a miracle I saw one in a neighbour's tree - I know that they are territorial and thought perhaps I can get him to increase the size of his territory if I can tempt him by some food that he likes ... let us just say that I am no Eve and I am still patiently trying to persuade him to eat at my bird table! Happy New Year!
