Things are crazy in the squirrel world right now. They’re suddenly all ravenous, chowing down everything I put out for them in a matter of hours. These two were so hungry and determined that they were willing to share the feeder!
For the past few days, the sound of scuffling, squeaky and squawking has been constant during the day light hours. Sometimes it sounds like someone is rearranging the furniture on my deck and, when I look out, there’s no one there except for squirrels, often as many as five or six at a time. Some of their chases have been so wild that I’m afraid to step outside for fear that I will be climbed like a tree!
I’m guessing that all this wild activity means mating season is on and, with the squirrel population already booming the way it is, that worries me a little!
