The baby squirrel is still alive and seems to be thriving. It’s still on the skinny side but it’s learned all the ways of the deck and yard and acts just like the adult squirrels.

Sadly, there is only one baby squirrel left. It seems they came out of their nest too early this year and were just too vulnerable to predators.
