There is already one video of Charley from this same morning, the 'golden Charley in the morning sun.

He was just so photogenic in that morning. The lighting was very good..

The same female of whom I was not sure if she is Mops or Star - now I think that it is Star:

Paula Silk ear has also been seen, but I have lost the video of her, for the moment.

21st July, in the evening. I saw one of the pups at 19:30

Soon he looked to have heard someone was approaching, and he went away. There was Baby face!

:gathering: Nice to hear, Felis! Oscar is a rare visitor. I haven't seen him after that visit. Of course I am not always behind the curtain.. :nod: During the two last days I have seen Paula Silk ear and Mops, no other squirrels.

I am making video of a Blue tit chick, with a new tool (ZoomBrowser EX)

The smooth surface is better b c it is easier to keep clean than a rough one, and birds also do not like to walk or sit and eat on it for too long time and to poop on it. Now their poop mostly when they are sitting and eating on the branch, and poop and the empty seed covers are easy to brush away. The ground under the feeder is partly of stones and cement, it is easy also wash with water spray.. I have been worried that birds could be sick if the places are not kept clean.

Paula Silk ear looks very "round" to me :puzzled: :laugh: Maybe some more little squirrels on the way?

Pups seem to have gone to elsewhere. I have not seen them for six days now. Last time I saw two of them, they looked very good and lively.

:wave: Oh, sorry, Felis! I meant you but wrote a wrong name. :blush:

I am still a bit confused about the sad happening, soon for two weeks ago. I almost can't watch pages where there are pictures of Bertha.
Everything looks normal here.
