Action Shots: Squirrels and Robins

 

Twice, on consecutive days, I've seen a squirrel come out of this hole. I'm  wondering if there's babies in there.

Once squirrel chased another down a tree and across this path. I missed the first squirrel, but here's his pursuer.

This is one of the previous two Robbins a few minutes later. He'd (or she) been doing a lot of eating.

A face-off between two squirrels.

Then one chased the other.

Perhaps he was defending his hoard of nuts. Squirrels are scatters hoarders. The deposit nuts all over the place and it's quite a feat of memory that they can remember where.

A neighbor's cat. He was crying at a door, but I've seen him go into another house in the past. Then the moment he saw me, he came to get pet.

  1. Robins! European robins look different, I don’t think they are the same bird 🙂

      If I recall correctly, they’re not even related. European settlers saw a reddish bird and called it by a name they knew.

      I was once reading about the inaccuracies in the movie version of Marry Poppins and one is the appearance of an American Robin.
