Back To The Squirrels
The surprising thing about this was that my dog was standing out there looking at the squirrel too. I figured that she'd scare away any wildlife that came near, but I've still been seeing plenty. This squirrel knew we were there, but he didn't mid at all.
The wood in the trailer was for the wood stove I use for heat. My dad built the stove so that none of the smoke could get in the house, but the heat comes in very nicely. It was an ingenious invention. My dad could build just about anything. He never realized just how intelligent he was.
Oh, back to the critters! I've also seen a few garter snakes on the property. I shoo them away whenever I see them. A lot of people would automatically kill any snake, but garter snakes are mostly harmless so I am as kind as I can be to them.
And there he goes! My little squirrel decided that he'd had enough of the extra attention we were giving him, so he went running down the tree to a more secluded place to scratch himself. And it's also time for me to go too. But don't worry, there will be no scratching involved.
Nature Center Magazine - Did you know that I do short posts on Nature Center Magazine too? They're a little different than the posts I write here, but they're still about nature, and they're just as fun!
