Calendar Squirrel – February

What better symbol of love….. but it was taken in March.

It’s time to move along into the sciurine year and find the second model for The Nest’s theoretical squirrel calendar I am virtually putting together with your input.  For each month of the year, I’ll pick some of my favorite squirrel photos I’ve taken during that month and let you pick a winner to be the eye candy for that month.  Unfortunately, the most seasonably appropriate pictures for each month weren’t necessarily taken in that particular month… but we’ll manage to throw something together.

Before we move on to the month the music died, let’s check out the final results for last week’s poll!

Adding in Merby’s vote for Blue Balls makes it an even more runaway winner.  Congrats on being the January Calendar Squirrel, blue balls!

January is the cruelest month.

And so…. onto February.  The month of love, Presidents, and groundhogs… not necessarily in that order.  February also doesn’t seem to be the best month for me taking squirrel pictures either, as I really had to scrape up a slate for this week’s voting.  But here are the nominees for the February Calendar Squirrel in chronological order….

#1. Foxy (My red tailed squirrel, February 13, 2014)

#2. Mass Transit (February 13, 2014)

#3. Not A Morning Squirrel (February 6, 2015)

#4. Supersquirrel (Look, he’s flying up the pole!  February 24, 2015)

#5. Sniff Sniff (February 24, 2015)

#6. Hang In There, Buddy! (February 4, 2016)

Alright then.  Surely we can find a silk purse out of this group of sow’s ears.  Vote now on which one of these should represent February on The Nest’s calendar!

Voting ends next Wednesday night September 4th!  Make your voice heard!

Alright, alright! We hear you!

    Although I liked the action shots… I went with Foxy this time around.

  4. Well since February is the month of love (haha) – Valentine’s Day – I went with Sniff Sniff – if that isn’t true love (or maybe true lust) I’d like to know what is!

    Clear blue sky always makes for a great backdrop to a photo. Went with Sniff Sniff.

    Aw, come on, voters, “Hang in there, buddy” is hilarious! I guess Foxy’s kinda cute.

  7. Me thinks Foxy may have visited the hair color isle at Mecca. 🐿

  8. The photo up there of *ahem* presumed squirrel love reminded me of times when hubby got frisky. I suspect the look on my face was similar to the lady squirrel’s. Sometimes it’s just too much effort to pretend to be enthused.

    They’re all so cute but Mass Transit is the one I kept coming back too. Three squirrels with huge, fluffy winter coats – so cute! And I love the determined look on their faces. The trek across that wire can’t be as easy as flying around a tree.

    By the way, the title of these posts gets that old calendar girl song stuck in my head for days. “I love I love I love my calendar squirrel!”

    • I’m very guilty of using earworms as the titles of posts, and I’ll usually find myself singing the song as well when I look back at it… and not even realize it. In fact, I found it quite a coincidence that I had the song “Calendar Girl” going through my head at the same time I read your comment…. until I realized why that was.

      I love Mass Transit despite the fact that the only things out of focus in that picture are the three squirrels. Trying to take pictures of squirrels on wires is extremely frustrating, because the camera seems to want to autofocus on the wire instead of the squirrel for some reason…

  10. Foxy Squirrel Lady. I can hear Jimi singing right now.
