It seems strange to find such a fat looking little squirrel at the end of winter. Usually they'd be kind of skinny by now, and out beginning the look for food. But is this squirrel really fat? I think it's just a trick in the way it is posing for me.
When I took these pictures a couple days ago the ground was still covered in snow, but now it's all almost gone. Spring is arriving right on time, and more importantly, right when I predicted it! By the first day of spring we will have no more snow on the ground.
Quite a few years ago there was a commercial for an old video game called Phoenix for the Atari system. The game was about mutant birds attacking. Their slogan was "The Birds Are Back!" I haven't seen any mutants recently, but maybe you can guess what I'll have for you next time.
