6th March four squirrels on the kitchen side

The video is very bad, but it's just to make a note that squirrels may eat together in peace - though the fifth one was uncertain if her/his presence is accepted.



Three squirrels:

the fourth one:

The fifth one was eating at the work room window feeder :laugh:
It's a bit like Titian but it's female - her left ear tassel looks like the left tassel of MopsJr, but.. :puzzled:

Screencaptures from the previous video:

Who is it? It's not Small ear Cacao nor Titian or Mops Jr.. :puzzled:
I think it is beautiful and the body is not as slim as some other ones, especially males.

:laugh: MacDoum, you may be right! This has happened in the earlier years too, that can't recognize a 'new but though familiar looking' squirrel, and it has been Oscar! :slap: He is such a rare visitor.

Look how it looked like spring yesterday:

A short view to the garden:



Last year on March there was here about 60 cm snow:


For the moment there is again a little squirrel which I can't recognize. It's sitting inside the feeder. :D

edit: I almost forgot. This one is a squirrel from yesterday. It could be LOng tassel..

Oscar?? Or Bud? Looking at the profile he recalls me of Bud too (the nose top position - 'snub' nose).
But I can't say! :dunno:

It's the same one we saw yesterday, and could not name it. Is it a male or female? This is not easy.. :D
This is the time when adult males are making wider trips to find suitable females.

(BTW, I saw Baby face early in the morning, but it was before sunrise and it was too dark to take video)

Something strange.. :help: Photobucket does not accept to upload this picture? Why??
I tried for five time: no picture link, no luck, no explication.

Now it is in aijaa.com but it will vanish sooner or later.

Both of them, Oscar and Bud were rather tall red squirrels. Baby face is one of the smallest adult males I have seen.

MacDoum: You may decide which one the as a way 'new' squirrel is, Bud or Oscar! :gathering:
---
Baby face has to rise on the toes to reach on the second floor, but Oscar doesn't.
October 2013, Baby face rising on toes:

Macdoum, the same has happened several times. It has been difficult to make the difference between Bud and Oscar. Of course their fur has changed, but not totally. I remember that it was you who noticed that the brown color of Bud is lighter than the fur of Oscar.

Both of them are rather tall, but the color of Oscar is a but different, more dark and the hois tassels too are rather dark! It has to be Oscar we have now seen for several videos.

I tried to find old pictures of both, nut it is difficult to choose the 'most typical'. But it can be seen than they are rare visitors and don't visit in winter.

Bud in 2010, he he used to be quite slim then :D :

One more picture of Oscar from 2012:
He was young then:

It is not so dangerous if I am wrong, but the amount of male squirrels here around the hill is limited.
It is possible though that an never unseen male appears here on the top of the hill. There are here some just very nice females to be find for mating company.

Good luck for Oscar and Bud (where ever you are!) :D
