One of our regular readers had a rare treat one of these sunny afternoons–a red fox napping in her sunny yard! We squirrels are just thankful it was over in her neighborhood, not ours! With the danger far from us, we thought our human readers would enjoy her photos.
The life of a predator! Thank you, Nancy!
So sunny days…do you feel like doing much?
Just like us squirrels, white-tailed deer have settled into suburban life. Keep those trees healthy for both of us! (Sorry, we felt compelled to say that after losing so many in our recent windstorm.)
Don’t know about our human readers, but here in northern Virginia we had a false fall. It’s been back to the heat for us and trying to stay cool!
We squirrels aren’t the only ones collecting those delicious acorns plonking on the rooftops of your human cars.
But this year, it looks like there will be enough to go around, for squirrels and chipmunks alike!
The woods of Reston’s open space are great places to run and hide.
Keep your eyes peeled as the leaves come down.
So muddy, we know who has been around…
These burly fellows are very much a part of suburban life and we squirrels like to think they make us look good. Raccoons seem to get into more trouble than we do…or at least bigger trouble!
Come on, who else would get stuck on a fence!
Even if you don’t see raccoons, since they like to prowl around at night, you might see signs of them.
These nice days we’re out and about, and so are our fellow nut gatherers!
Harder to see those chipmunks, isn’t it?
all we squirrels get done is the basics, like finding a good meal. This is not acorn season, or bird feeder season, so we really have to hunt. And stay cool! Hope you do the same.
