There’s been the makings of a nest between the eavestroughing and the house since as long as I’ve lived here, which is over three years. Until now, I’ve seen no activity involving it – no birds coming and going, no building, nothing. … Squatters or no, I’m glad they’ve taken over the vacant space. 🙂 These pictures are taken from the end of February.
He must have broken free from his travelling circus where he works on the tightrope. … Because, honestly, other than ants or other bugs on the bark, what could the squirrel possibly be interested in? … Apparently, he’s had enough of me snapping his picture.
But every time I try to think “Contortionist Squirrel”, it comes out as “Contortionist Barbie”. Sue me. 🙂 Yup, squirrels hang out a lot around our house. … And since they don’t cause any bad behavior as long as they don’t come inside – which they haven’t with this house *knocks on wood* – I’m pretty much fine with them. 🙂 This one, today, was climbing all over the tree, upside down, sideways, just having a good ol’ time.
