Do you know who this is?!? :)
This cute little fella scampering across the top of our potting shed is our long lost red squirrel, Red Tail!! (Or, quite possibly, a relation.) Whatever the case may be, we have been months without a red squirrel at our feeders - ever since that fateful day last April - and I have truly missed his fun and feisty presence.
I watched him just now as he flitted about, trying to find a way to jump over to a large squirrel-friendly feeder. He was comical to watch - as they always are - leaping about, crashing through foliage, looking for the right (safest) way to the seeds. And this is why I suspect it might not be Red Tail, because that little squirrel certainly knew his way around the feeders. Of course it has been several months ... perhaps the injuries he sustained from the cat attack left him with amnesia or something? Oh, who am I kidding, it is probably just another little red squirrel from somewhere deep in the woods, but that's all right by me. I'm just thrilled to have him/her/hopefully THEM back! :)
More little nature stories to come later ... lots of neat photos to share. :)
