Even though the snow is long gone and Spring seems to finally be settling in (Famous last words, I know), I wanted to get these pics I got from one of the first snows that fell during our epic two week deep freeze last month on the blog before they got buried in the archive. While they’re a bit grainy because I was shooting these from my front door while the squirrels were three houses down the street, it was actively snowing at the time and you can see the flakes falling in most of these.
Also…… squirrels and birds living together! The need to feed brings world peace…
Cold Saturday Squirrels…. and Saturday Birds!
Have a great weekend everyone!
When we have plenty of seed in our birdfeeders the squirrels don’t chase the birds away – but when seed is scarce, look out birds. The squirrels do not want the birds to eat from THEIR feeders and will chase them quite some distance away just to HOG all the seed that’s available. Love the snowy photos – let’s hope that’s the last snow though – we had more than we’ve had in YEARS and I’m hoping it’s not a new trend for winter!
You never know. We’ve settled into a warmer pattern, but March is notorious for surprise big snows. I’ll rest assured there’s no more snow on about Memorial Day or so…
Squirrels and birds together? There goes the neighborhood.
And I was going to invite you over for a barbecue. I have a seat all nice and warm for you….
Yes – world peace! You have a good weekend, too.
These squirrels are so precious. Birds too! Birds and squirrels have taken over my deck and yard. They love to look in the windows at me. I look right back. Have a wonderful weekend. Now I’m off to write something for “The Contest of Whatever”
Aw, the contest ended yesterday and I announce the winners tomorrow! I’d still be happy to see a just for fun entry, though…
Squirrels and birds living together…more like full on competition for breakfast!
A real life game of Hungry Hungry Hippos…
Of course a birdie would high step in deep snow. I’m sure their ‘bits’ get just as cold as the next creature…. 😉 Those squirrels of course have fur nut sacks….
I’m sure the feathered sack can be just as toasty. And I’ll bet those hard legs never go numb from the cold like a poor squirrel’s…
You have to admit, they are certainly DRESSED for it! Of all the creatures I see out in the snow, the squirrels are the only ones that look warm enough.
Squirrels know how to adapt for the winter. If you don’t hibernate, you better grow a pretty nice fur coat…
There’s something about a fluffy grey squirrel in the snow. So cute.
We just adore them while they freeze their poor nuts off…
Brrr. They’re probably warm enough in their fluffy fur, though.
Ooh, they’re so fluffy! I just bought a huge bag of peanuts and set it on the porch table to feed the squirrels–too late–they already broke into the bag and are helping themselves!
So cute! Your squirrels seem to be more adaptable and tougher than ours. We had snow for a day and the squirrels acted like they were playing that kid’s game where you pretend the floor is made of lava. I got a picture of one perched on the pergola looking extremely irritated. I’ll try to remember to post it.
We’ve got some all-weather squirrels around here! I’ve seen them standing out on tree branches in the middle of pouring rain, snow, and even when it’s cold and windy. I’d love to see your irritated squirrel…. and if nothing else, you can save him for next year’s CoW!
