:faint:

Here is what I could testify today at noon! Squirrels have begun the winter time! Doesn't he look familiar, does he? I don't dear to say his name.. but.. he was not for the first time on the feeder. He checked all corners, the second floor, and took water.

I was just about to begin to clean the platform, but I heard the familiar noise from the roof, left the pure water there and shut the window..

:bow: May I introduce, the first visitor of new Fall:

:wave: Hi, macdoum and Alice!

This is why I thought that it could have been Charley:

But of course, he may be Oscar too! :nod: We have to accept that it is not very easy to recognize an individual squirrel for 100% after several months.
Anyway, the squirrel today looked very good!

Today at 14, at the same time as the chimney man was here. The squirrel escaped when chimney man climbed on the roof, but he didn't scare dogs that were barking to the man. He just stopped eating at whiles and listened the voices.

How the winter will be, we will see, first of all I hope that all of them had a good summer and will come back to Olga's feeder!
But it seems they remember where they got food from during the cold time and what amuses me also, the tits always present somewhere in the background :mrgreen:
