Over here spring has already arrived a while back, I hope in Finland it did too. Time for a new chapter in the great Squirrel Saga

It is Mr Spock, but I'm not sure. It's a male, and the tassels are very long. hm.. :puzzled: but the guy looks like 'thin'... not fat, slim! And his face is .. how to say.. is it normal to say: 'narrow face'? Rat face? I have nothing against rats! :D ..long profile, sharp nose.. my English!! :blush:

continues, the same squirrel begun to take the hazel nuts:

Mr Spock (it's a guess):

He hurried back and forth to take all the hazer nuts to a better place:
He was fast, but I managed the get some of the moments in the following video:
It was fun to see how the squirrel looked like little robber. The nuts were for him! For him too, of course.

Nanu is very handsome and he certainly seems to be enjoying his treat.



Narrow face, rat face, long profile, pointy nose -- all seem fine and very descriptive.

Ok, alice, and thanks!

Today was a very cold day. The morning looked normal, but then, in one hour the ground was white again:

Sudden snow fall on Squirrel hill in a spring afternoon:

Several squirrels have been visiting. I guess they were hungry and were not able to find all those nuts they have put in the lawn, in the ground hole, soil.

The next one was Charley, the devoted visitor for some years now..

Immediately after him came :puzzled: ... I can't say who exactly, but a good looking fellow :D

Charley was still close, he was jumping on the branch top:

The nice looking bud took a big nut anf left:

So, there was a heavy snow fall. I put an umbrella hanging from the apple tree to keep the new sun flower seeds not to be buried in the snow.



Image

The snow fall almost stopped and the red tailed morning visitor was back, can't say for sure:
Anyway, it's an afternoon visitor!

Then appeared the one we saw yesterday, with very long tassels, but the battery was empty.

The last squirrel I caught today on video:
It's Mr Spock. His tassels are not short either :D

The squirrels are also cute and I love the umbrella idea -- perfect.
