Hello Olga :wave:

A "Mops" is a pug, please will you look here:

http://www.kolumbus.fi/troppola

I tried to find something in your language, but this one is in English, too.

Sometimes pugs have overweight, so it is a figure of speech to say that he/she or it looks like a Mops/pug :laugh:

Some of these last pictures are very cute and it looks like the squirrel's red fur is reappearing.

Yes, it's true, the red fur is coming back. It will be interesting to see if 'our' squirrels can be recognized after they loose also their tassels..

Today I have organized my old files, one after the other, hundreds if not thousands, and moved them to a bigger external hard disk. I happened to find a video I made for two years ago! There is not much to see, only raven calls can be heard. I wonder where they are now?? There used to be here some 10-15 ravens. They had meetings on the spruce tops then.. I heard also a raven chick 'talking' with the parent - but can't remember if I recorded that voice - a baby raven's chatter.

3rd June 2010 early in a cloudy morning



Oh, I almost forgot to tell, that squirrels have been seen, but not at the feeder. They were eating under the big spruce where I have put a cup filled with nuts, especially for Paula. There were two or three squirrels, and two of them run up and down and around the spruce trunk.
There is a mess in the garden.. and, oh dear, our younger dog is so interested to go outside fence!! She makes me busy!

Today there has been 'happenings' in the yard, and squirrels were seen outside the fence. Again some squirrels running around the big spruce.

This is has to be Mops :D seen from the kitchen window.

it's just b c of the bad edit that her tassels and tail look that dark on the first picture:
Image

Image

..hm.. :???: she noticed me trying to keep the cam in balance, it's difficult! She escaped..

The same as here, the 10th April:

Yes, it's exactly what I think! We have seen different looking squirrels, yes, but this one is more 'round' than anyone other I have earlier noticed. I listened to a program in our radio for one week ago, on Squirrels, a 'Big Squirrel evening', 120 minutes. There was told that it may happen that a squirrel may deliver as much as 10 pups (hardly half of them will survive) it is hard to believe, but this was what they said. Squirrels are not very well examined, researched well enough, here, because they are not under the threat of 'extinction'.. even though it's true that the amount of them is going down little by little, they claimed (3-4 nature professionals.. one of them knew quite a lot about the European Red Squirrel, but even she is more an expert on the Flying Squirrel, Pteromys volans, a squirrel that really has been endangered of the extinction.

Five videos uploaded. Yotube is editing them for the moment, a bit more balanced.

A squirrel coming and going, wood pigeons here and there. On the third video there can be heard Tiit and Tiina calling :D

The Red squirrel, just eating, mostly seen through the bird feeder window.

The special video:

In the beginning of the previous video there happens to be a reddish tone, by accident, but it's suitable - to honor Tiit and Tiina to heard on this video :nod:

Black storks clack and calling on the back ground of a squirrel video, from 0:46 forwards towards the end..

3:

I am not sure if the squierrel heard the louder calls by Tiit and Tiina, but he ate the nut he had on hands and left! :rotf:..but he returned soon.

pics..
