The squirrels drink surprisingly often! (I know that they need water too, but we don't usually see them drink)
I have a "bird bath" in my garden, and the birds really enjoyes it. They use it to drink, and to take a bath.

Olga :hi: : I hope you are fine.
Nice to see some new pictures and video's of your squirrels.
I think it's interesting to see how long Mops jr. and Big ear stay together on the feeder. I never saw two squirrels so close and friendly to each other. Most of the time they chased away the others. Like on the end of your video :laugh: .

Beautiful pictures and videos as always :thumbs:
It´s so nice to see Paula and Baby face on the feeder at the same time. They disappeared when you opened the window, but not for long, they becomes more and more brave. They know that the lady behind the window is very kind :nod:
Thank you for the update from Squirrel Hill, Olga :wave:

Hi, Lussi! :wave:

18th September:



It's so lovely to come to my work room in the morning as Paula is there waiting for 'me', food. She has been waiting for me many times. She does not escape any more at all. I almost could have touched her - but I will not do that... Small birds wake up earlier than squirrels, and they eat everything in one hour. :slap:
