TGIF - squirrel edition

TGIF - 'Tocks Goodness it's Friday! Here are some cute little squirrel 'tocks for you this Friday.

Who can resist this little face?

Party, indeed. Have a good weekend everyone!

SQUIRREL UPDATE!!!!! Last night, a few hours after I finished composing this post, I looked outside on the deck, and found our first flying squirrels of the year! Wow!

You can see my post about flying squirrels from last year here, but here's a sneek peek:

OMG, aren't they the cutest?!

I'll be waiting to see the squirrel pics. Sorry you had some difficulties. And speaking of squirrels! I have 15 of them out here right now. Yikes! Ha!

Oh my goodness!! So cute! I would love to see one of those flying fellows at my feeders at night. We seem to attract the raccoons at night... Also, very, very cute Nutkins!

Ginnymo - Thanks for your patience. Just a little glitch in the picture-posting process. Wow, I don't know what I would do with 15 squirrels. What do you feed them?

Kelly - Last summer was the first time we noticed the flying squirrels, and it was their high-pitched squeaking noises that brought them to our attention (that and we kept hearing movement on our "squirrel-proof" bird feeder!). They are really a hoot.
Only the cutest Nutkins live in our woods!

Omg!! Flying squirrels!! I'm so jealous!! I've never seen any. I don't think they are around here. They are soooo cute Heather!!! And your yard party with the Gray ones are so cute. The trouble with all the squirrels I have around here is they eat way too much and one of these days I won't be able to keep up. I go to a Aubuchon Hardware store near here to get my feed. They have bags of what they call "Chickadee Delight" But there are whole nuts in there as well as black oil and so many other kinds of seeds that everyone can be fed from the same bag. But since I can't walk out there I have to throw the food out my window so it's quite a mess in the spring. I have to hire someone to clean it up. They take it into the woods and dump it like a compost pile.
I hope we get to see more of the flying squirrels. They are so neat!! It was worth the wait!!

OMG - they are so cute! I've never seen a real live flying squirrel. I love how the two of them work together to bypass your "squirrel proof" feeder!

Ruthie - Yes, I think they KNOW that this is something that they're not meant to be on, so they work extra hard to defeat it!
