Any Nuts to Spare?

Any Nuts?



One of the local squirrels (we like to call them ekorrar), came over for a visit today. There's an empty bird feeder on this birch tree next to the veranda at Bergdalen. That can be very upsetting for a hungry squirrel, hence the stare down, which was won by the squirrel I might add, as I have now refilled the feeder. As I took this photo it started to snow and I'm guessing we will get a few centimetres of snow now.

Gud så sött! Jag blir alldeles matt. Fast några (eller var det samma?) hade bedrövliga svansar, som såg alldeles malätna ut. Stackarna :)

I was completely entertained by your portraits of the squirrels. Those tufts of fur on their ears are too cute.

Steffe said...

Thanks all.

It's been a tough winter for everyone birds and squirrels included. The feeder is half full now so someone has been there eating!

Det kan ha varit samma ekorrar. Katten har dödat en tre fyra stycken det sista året.
