Just another WordPress.com weblog about Nature and Wildlife

This Grey Squirrel likely lives in the small gulch or gully wooded area just under the pond’s dam.  There are a lot of medium-sized trees in that area with quite a lot of privacy and water.  The Squirrel basically sprints from the gulch across open grassy lawn over to the grove of Oaks next to the pond.  The Squirrels run full-tilt as fast as they can in order to avoid possibly being seen by predators.  The attraction is the plump acorns that the Squirrels are so fond of.  I was looking out my window yesterday at almost 4:00 in the afternoon and spotted this Squirrel.  The Squirrels here are quite wary of people so I had to quietly go out of the house and take the pictures.  The Squirrel did spot me and sprinted away.  I seldom see the Squirrels here (that will assuredly change once my bird feeders get put up) so I was happy to see this one.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture.  Enjoy!

  2. Oh those busy squirrels…. What else can I say????? ha

    No rain at all here today… It looked like rain several times –but never did even drizzle.


  3. Squirrels are a barrel of fun to watch- they almost remind me of mimes, with their expressive movements and antics. Nice pictures!

  4. I think that sometimes one squirrel is all the squirrels you want. They sure are fun to watch though. I find it interesting that they are out all winter while the chipmunks are sleeping now.
