The babies have left home...

A while back, I posted a photo of a squirrel who had chosen to give birth in one of the birdhouses in my backyard. Sunday, one by one, the mother groomed each baby squirrel and they left the birdhouse house for the first and last time. And why not? Spring is in full bloom in Chicago now, and it's beautiful!

  8. I love the first picture- you could easily sell that one to a calendar company!

    Here in NYC, the squirrels are like the pigeons. Unless you try to actually pick one up (and catch God knows what) they are not impressed by you at all.

  11. Very cute! And yes, squirrels are evils. I'm certain of that, and my Yorkie would agree. There's one that sits on the fence and literally taunts my dog, who despite being adorable, would love to shred that squirrel. Yorkies were bred to kill rat-like things!

  13. How cute is that!! I like squirrels, actually. Some people call them rats with fluffy tails. My husband used to love watching them on the bird feeders when we lived back east. Entertaining antics!
