I just wonder if it ever has been this dark beginning of the new winter :shock:

But squirrels seem to be normal. This morning at 9:45 there were again two squirrels. The other one was still a bit brownish and the other was more gray. I am not sure which is which on the video when they changed places. The more fat (? :D ..with a roundish body anyway) one spent more time on the feeder.





14 pictures from these two videos follow:

Felis, I noticed this picture too -- When I visit this thread I tend to look at all the photos again as if they are all new.

This time I thought, oh it is good I don't live near Olga or I might steal her dog.
