2020 will be the year of the squirrel if The Nest has any say in things. That’s because we’re putting together a virtual squirrel calendar, and we’re giving the power back to the people by letting YOU, the squirrel fans out there, vote for your favorite monthly representatives among my vast archive of sciuriness. We’re halfway done completing our lineup now, and just in case there isn’t an apocalypse by the middle of next year, we’ll need to find a real firecracker to be Mr./Miss July!
But first….. the June vote! Man, was this a fun poll to keep track of! Going into the final day, the top three candidates were all deadlocked. But then last night….
Quirky Girl popped in to serve as the Vice President and cast the tiebreaking vote to make Samurai Squirrel our official cover boy for the month of June! Congrats to the squirrel with the sword, and now I won’t have to fear him beheading me if he lost…
The sweltering month of July is probably my biggest void among all twelve months of the year, since squirrels and photographers alike prefer to stay indoors during our muggy Midwestern summers. But I was able to scrape up a pretty decent field, and here are the July squirrels bidding for your approval and adoration this week, as always, in chronological order…
#1. Electric Squirrel (July 21, 2013)
#2. Birdbath Cafe (July 24, 2013)
#3. What Are You Looking At? (July 25, 2013)
#4. Peekaboo! (July 29, 2014)
#5. Middle of the Road (July 12. 2018)
#6. Blondie (July 11, 2019)
So, which squirrel will it be? Please vote in the poll below! If you can’t see the poll below, please mention it in the comments and which squirrel you’d like to vote for, and I will add your vote to the total. I think some people are only voting in the comments, and that won’t work unless I know it’s because the poll isn’t appearing for you!
As usual, voting ends next Wednesday night the 9th! Say it loud and proud! Vote for the July squirrel in our virtual calendar, or the communists will win…
