Paula eating stomach full, Baby face, the almost skinny little boy squirrel complaining on the 'back stage',
Oh, no, no, please, don't eat all of my nuts!



There is voice of a Woodpecker too, on 38 sec..but the other 'animal voices' are made by Baby face.

There are four videos to be uploaded. They are from the 6th, 7th, 9th and from today. I'll add here the pictures I have chosen from those videos, now beforehand. Those videos are ready, but I have to upload them in youtube just tomorrow.

Today I have been somewhat more inside. In the mean time all squirrels have been visiting all the day long! There was Baby face and Mops, but also some others..The was one small female I begun to wonder that she has not visited for long time, she looked familiar from last summer, I gave her the name Bertha then, in summer 2011. You will see her tomorrow on the fourth video.

6th June

Mops and Baby face, probably.. Baby face has still some gray spots on his back, but all other squirrels are red brown now.

The third one squirrel at the end of the video climbing down and jumping on the wooden box was probably Bertha! She is a young female and I have not seen her for a long time - note, she has no ear tassels left as the two others on the video do, Baby face and Mops.

Olga, such perfect pictures that you take :bow: I can see every hair on those squirrels.
You have a good camera and a good "eye" for the picture.

Bertha, she came alone as early as 6:30.

This is how she watched at 'me' (the curtaina the lens) for more than two minutes, without turning her face aside...

Berta at place, she seems to be very calm squirrel by nature.

Now I see as I watched some days backwards that she has been seen, but if she visited as she had gray fur, I didn't recognize her. I just remembered her face and her way to watch in a peculiar way. She is a squirrel who has temperament, too. As almost baby she chased away an adult male, Bud by splashing him with her paw, last summer.



***
Two minutes without moving, just thinking and watching.. :laugh:

I moved just the lens some times, zoomed her ear tops and nose.



BTW, she is there again! Now, 11:56. She leans on the water pot and is staring here.. :rotf:

I have to.. I found some pictures of Bertha from last summer, July:


Bertha in summer 2011



Bertha was off to see for one half an hour. Then she returned and she was thirsty. I think she is really a cute young squirrel. In some pictures I think it can be seen well that she is still very young.

July 10th, 2011, 2:13 pmThe unnamed young female came after Star one more time.
She too looked shy, I think. Nappu has that kind of ears, too! :D But Nappu does not have that wild sight (..or looking?? 'katse') in her eyes.
