We had fun observing this squirrel that often visits our bird feeders. We finally caught him removing the roof to the top feeder. We see him almost everyday out our kitchen window. He likes to retreat to a branch about 15 feet from the ground that sticks out only about 2 feet from the tree. Instead of drawing our squirrel for the nature notebooks, the boys completed a coloring sheet. The boys also loved the videos on Barb's blog. They watched them numerous times and every visitor had to watch them as well! We are very fond of squirrels and enjoy watching them and taking their picture. The two photos below are old, but memorable.
This is a very friendly squirrel we encountered at my mother's house. We were able to get very close to him without him being frightened.
