Charley, seen again after 12, twelve weeks! :loveshower:

He was seen last time on the 8th December 2013. I was wondering his fur color, he was more brownish than any one else. Now he has almost his summer color, gold brown. You should see him in the morning sun shine, his fur is pure gold!

Funny pictures "Olga". :wave:
Yesterday I saw in my garden a similar vision. The squirrel just "Popsi" food very close to me, so I could have even ironed it, but I know that is sharp teeth, I'm sorry that I can still put those pictures. I'll take the real deal inhabitants of our yard, which is enough. Every day we see: fox, rabbit, squirrel. Pheasant (male and female), several species of birds.

Hi, Iku :wave: I would not dare to touch them! :laugh: They may have kirppuja, fleas or who knows which kind of little lodgers. I love them very much, but ... never touch them - but sometimes I wonder how it would feel if e g Paula jumped to sit on my hand! Paula the grand mother is the tamest one of the familiar squirrels here. Other squirrels are cautious.

:wave: spatz.

That may be the reason. The males ( others but not Baby face. Why, I have no idea..) may still begin make bigger journeys - there is nice smell hanging over the air all over the hill, I think. The females 'on the other side' are more attractive!

I just hope that the males do not cross the bigger hill road, not too many times! Thanks heaven there is big curve in the street that goes by Squirrel Hill - car's have to slow down the speed! And thanks heaven the small hill road is full of holes made by the melting ice under the surface of the read: car's have to drive very very slow! :laugh:

Today morning I opened again the window to put more seeds for birds and squirrels.
I saw that there was a squirrel sitting on the branch about three meters far.
Suddenly the squirrel begun to run towards my hand! It was Paula! :laugh:

It was the very first time when she walked straight towards my hand.

For one second I felt temptation to wait how close she would come, would she take seeds from my hand??
I decided to take my hand inside and shut the window quietly.

Well, perhaps it is better not to make closer contact with these wild squirrels. :unsure:

I think you're right.

The video of the great and the blue tit is really relaxing. The close-ups of these cute little guys are so lovely.

So good to read that Charley has been seen again! Wonder what adventures he has had on Squirrel Hill, looking for nice ladies :laugh:
