This is my little boy I call ‘Red‘.
He’s not a red squirrel, however he does have a reddish tint. He has no fear of me and regularly stops at my window for his fill of sunflower seeds. Red and the other squirrels actually do leave my feeders alone, not sure if it’s because I offer them other, easily attained food or the fishing line I used to hold the feeders up is too small for them to climb on. Or maybe they haven’t gotten their obstacle course training yet!!
“Hello, Ilex! I’m here to eat the sunflower seeds you left me!”
Nom, nom, nom…
Red is a young squirrel, I’ve not seen him before this year. There used to be a few older squirrels that would stop by, however I think the ‘nature cycle’ has taken them to a better place, as I don’t see them anymore.
