I agree to you, alice! And many thanks and greetings to Olga for the pictures and the always well filled feeder. The squirrels may wonder, why this stock never ends . . . :whistling:

Yesterday I learned from a film on squirrels that they are not able to see the colour red, they only can see green and blue, but they have a very fine nose.

The film is in German and parted into five videos, includes wonderful scenes and a sad one with a hawk, but is nevertheless worth seeing (despite the noisy advertisement at the beginning):
http://www.myvideo.de/watch/5255279/Das ... rnchen_1_5
http://www.myvideo.de/watch/5255385/Das ... rnchen_2_5
http://www.myvideo.de/watch/5255450/Das ... rnchen_3_5
http://www.myvideo.de/watch/5255517/Das ... rnchen_4_5
http://www.myvideo.de/watch/5255600/Das ... rnchen_5_5

The videos are a nice stock for long winter days, even when you may not understand what the speaker tells you. But you shouldn't turn the sound off.

:wave: leonia! Thank for the links to the video!! I will watch it as soon as possible.

Today was so dark, at 16:00 it was almost like in the night. One squirrel came. And there was no nuts!.. :blush:

The squirrel looked several time in the second floor, but no, there was nothing..
It jumped on the roof and begun to watch in my room, I was sitting there at the table..There was no curtain, only a black cartoon to cover the reflexions from my messy table.. :D

Because the squirrel seemed not to be scared of me, I went and opened the window to put nuts in the feeder - it escaped then..

But after ten minutes it returned with an other squirrel.. :laugh: :
