There were several birds, Woodpecker chick and the adults, small pirds like Great tits, a Blue tit, a Chaffinch chick and Tree sparrows. I have some kind of videos of birds, too, but I'll not add the yesterday videos in time order.

The next was a quite red pup! He/she was eating there without disturbance almost for one hour.. :laugh:




There it was sitting. It was raining.. It did not anything else but ate, and ate..

The next pup was a gray faced fur ball with a dark nose. The nose fur was wet. He looked almost like koala pup. I think it is a male. He was more 'lively' than the previous pup, the red one. I have difficulties to choose the best of them or the most typical as a way..

It was still raining... For thirty minutes later there was again a 'new' looking pup! The fur of this one was dry! It was raining all the afternoon. Where had it been in shelter?

(there is a reflection from the window glass over the body of the pup.. could not help it. I could also take just a short video b c there were guests knocking on the back door, neighbor !.. what a pity.. :D )



pictures later on ...

One of the three or four Red squirrel pups seen on Squirrel Hill in the summer 2012, a male.

It has gray face, but as a whole he is quite reddish.. difficult to say. Dark nose top. :D

I have still some bird videos from yesterday!

I'll add them here, even though I may have done too much videos now, but these videos are very short.

And what happened today! There seems to be more and more Tree sparrow chicks e g, I saw at least 10 of them under the apple trees. And also Chaffinches can be seen more, 4-5 more than yesterday, and their parents too are now searching food around the garden.. etc..


7 - Woodpecker at 15:00



:laugh: They prefer to take just one nut at time

Yes! Tuula, you are right:

This picture is from a video that I can add here later, it has not been uploaded in youtube yet:

:laugh:

Image

On that video from the 24th June, appears two female squirrel mothers whom I think I recognized - even from the summer 2010!
this was just a hint.. :nod: there are so many interesting videos waiting! It is again too late.. :cry:

Image

***
An other hint: today, 26th there were also two pups, too, together on the platform, eating peaceful together!..

Image

Good night :sleeping:

Good morning!

There are many pictures and videos to be added..from the 24th - 26th June..

Paula and Bertha have been seen.
(Paula is actually the same female that has been seen for three years, she used have name Silk ear. Her paw looks to vae recovered very well. - There are hundreds of pictures of her on threads of Finnish seasons, 2009-2010-2011...)

In winter I was not sure who she was, and then, as she got the injury on her right paw I had to give a name, Paula.

Silk ear (Paula), 24thJune:


At 1:15 a pup appears to the left branch, Silk ear (or should I call her as Paula?? :slap: ..yes..) I mean Paula chased the pup away. Then I saw the face of Paula exactly, and I knew her, she has been recognized from the year 2010 (at least)!

Paula: Image

She keeps sometimes her ear top like that:

Her profile and the colors of her cheek, note the light beach on the lower part, rather pale:

The next visitor was Bertha who hoped to keep company for Paula..

(happening on 24th June in the midday)



- Oh, someone is there again..

Image

- It is her, Bertha, alright..

Image

Image

-How are you, Bertha? How is your eye today?

Bertha had got a little injury on her face skin, close to the right eye, in Midsummer night..more of it a bit later on
