:gathering: Great! A new Topic for the Finnish squirrels.

It looks promising.

In this morning again there was someone at the place before the sun rice, before 8:00.

Who ever it was he/she ate the rest of the nuts that there had been.

No nuts, only some oat flakes were left.

He (I think it's a he) left but didn't go far. I opened the window, added nuts on the feeder, turned the light off because it makes reflections which may spoil pictures when it is this kind of cloudy morning:

Today at 14:45

Is he a new visitor? At first I thought that he is the same squirrel as yesterday, but he is not. His tassels are a bit smaller. And the color of the tassels is different too. Cousins? :D

It looked that sweet as he cleaned his paws that I made a short video of part of the cleaning process, and changed this part to run in slow.

Soon he left, but he looked behind like saying that he will return.

Hello :slap:

:blush: Now I see that I have put the last pictures of squirrels and the sun set videos in the old, last Summer Topic! :laugh:

What if I add them here too?.. I can't move the comments there, but if I move just 'copies'? ..hm.. two time same posts, here and there. Boring perhaps.. 8-)

Here you can see squirrels from yesterday, some pictures and two videos:

Welcome back to Automn Olga...it didn't seem fair you had summer and we have winter. :rotf:
I don't suppose the squirrels care what we call the season. They only know that its time to eat as much as possible and even make stores for the wintertime. :nod:
They are very glad you can provide.!!

Your squirrels are never boring, Olga! Even if they are here twice! I think it's my fault, because I posted the woodpecker holes there and you answered there as well.
The "second Squirrel" is absolutely adorable :loveshower:
