This is actually my first post about squirrels in months. I purposely stopped writing about them awhile ago to give everyone a bit of a break. It was shortly after that that the squirrels decided that it was time to finally find their warm places for the rest of the winter. Maybe they felt snubbed by my lack of writing about them.
And now, just as the other animals are doing, the squirrels are coming back out to enjoy the warmth of this early spring-like weather. This is the very first squirrel I've seen on the ground in at least a month, and it's very clear that he was ready for me when I got there.

Most of the squirrels still don't seem ready to come down out of the trees yet though. They seem to be content to bide their time in the treetops for now. They don't quite trust this early spring yet, but I see more coming down every day. Soon this little nature and hiking park will once again become the squirrel paradise that it has always been.
