If you missed last week’s Saturday Squirrel post, I introduced you to some of the first pictures I got of a baby squirrel I discovered in my backyard last Friday. It was easily the tiniest squirrel I’ve ever seen for myself, and he wasn’t done entertaining me that day. He started climbing back up the trunk of the tree, and I lost sight of him…
Where did you go, little guy?
Oh, there you are!
I found him sitting on a small branch about 30 feet off the ground. You might freak out of a human baby sat on a balcony that far up, but I think our little squirrelette will be just fine.
So far, all I was able to take of my little visitor was pictures of him in the tree. I was really hoping he’d come down onto the ground…
Oh, he’s down to the bottom of the tree!
Will he venture down onto the ground into terra incognito?
So young, yet so wise….
We’ll see what our tiny Saturday Squirrel does next week!
Have a great weekend everyone!
He or she really is a very young one indeed……looking right at you in many of the photos too. Maybe he thinks the guy with the camera will toss him a peanut one of these days?
A peanut…. ha! Just wait until next Saturday…..
How adorable!! ❤ ❤ I tune in to "Saturday Squirrel" any way, but Baby Saturday Squirrel has got me enchanted. I'll be back to see where he ventures next….. (thank you, very sincerely, for giving me something to grin widely at. It's going to storm and all is gloomy in Utah)…
I think you’ll love next week’s (and maybe the week after’s) pictures. Theres’ lots and lots of cuteness to come!
So what you’re saying is they begin the tormenting/teasing early on in life? 🐿
Does that look like the face of a tormentor?
He’s so cute–look at those big paws:-)
The feet look excessively large for his body! Gotta have those claws to venture out of the nest, though…
That squirrel needs a name…
Squee the Squirrel…
Sorta creative… sorta phoning it in…
Oh my goodness. He’s just precious!
It’s Tiny SquirrelWatch! Are there no parent squirrels looking after him or is he already out on his own?
There was nobody else around the day I saw him. There were three adult squirrels out in the yard Friday with no sign of the little one. I have yet to see him a second time (though I rarely look out)…
So cute. Wait until he grows into those feet.
I’d just love to see the little thing again! I’ve been peeping out the window at random the past two weeks and no sign of them since…
I think these are some of the best pictures you’ve ever taken of your furry friends. Really great shots. Sharp, clear, and close. We’ve got a few baby squirrels this week. They must have left the nest recently. But unlike baby birds who are often surprisingly ugly, these little guys look like perfect squirrels, just smaller.
