Bear the squirrel came running down the fence all excited for her pile of sunflower seeds this morning, as usual, except this time she brought company.
This little guy (girl?) was following her along the fence, probably eager to find out where mom has been spending her time all day.
Naturally we went out to try to get a picture, but the baby got spooked and ran up the side of the neighbour’s house, so this is the best we could get.
This is the first spring baby we have seen this year, and judging by how huge all the momma squirrels have been, there’s sure to be a lot more where he came from too!
