A Motionless Monday Holiday Wish!

Lo, what do we see on yonder fence?

Could it be Santy-Paws?

May the wonders of nature be yours this holiday season!

Closing down

It’s late in the day and snowing, our first snowfall of the season here in northern Virginia.

The overcast day reminds us squirrels of how we like to sleep more in the winter, stay holed up in our leaf nests and only run around enough to dig a few acorns. So that’s what we’ll be doing the next few months. We might pop in if something excites us, but we’re pretty much putting the blog to bed like we do each winter.

Stay safe out there! See you in the spring!

Motionless Monday

Hey there!

We are seeing this thing less and less, so this not-quite-a-wildlife-statue was fun to see!

And yes, it looks like Nutmeg is planning to close the blog for the season–we’ve just gotten too quiet here! She’ll post soon.

Have a great week!


One of Nature’s Mysteries to Solve

Hey there!

Quiet week here. I think this is an easy guess of most humans, but, hey, I’ll throw it out there anyway!

Be back later for your guesses!


All–nearly all!–they leaves on the ground here are oaks. The yellow leaves amid the coppery brown ones are  a branch form a White Oak tree. It’s one I–Hickory Squirrel–cut myself to add to my leaf nest. That’s why it’s a bit fresher than the rest of the red oak leaves that fell naturally.

Chilly nights, you know! We all need to add our layers.
