Rooftop Squirrel

This is the life…. I guess.

After a relatively cool first half of Spring, this week’s given us our first dose of daily highs in the 80’s (F, not C for those of you who prefer small numbers in your weather forecasts).  A good time for those who actually like being in the sun to get out there and soak up those Vitamin D and ultraviolet rich rays!

This squirrel I came across at the park last week is doing just that on top of the shingled dugout roof at the big softball field.  He’s probably still a bit warm with his fur coat still transitioning from heavy winter to much lighter summer…

Anyone got an air conditioner I can lounge in front of?

Poor guy.  Anything I can do to make your Saturday Squirrel appearance more comfortable?

Well, I could use some suntan lotion on my back if you don’t mind…

Errrrrrr….. I’ll see if any of the park employees are available to help you with that.

Have a great weekend everyone!

    Squirrels are such whirlwinds of action…. nice shot of some rare down time!

  2. That’s a super photo…….I bet if Mr. Squirrels checks the park trashcans there’s bound to be some “leftover” suntan lotion there (why not – people throw away all kinds of stuff in parks!).


  3. Looks like he’s soaking up the warmth.

  6. Now that’s relaxation!!

  7. Today we started getting the humidity too. I had SO hoped we’d get a month off before the air become even more unbreathable. it has been unbreathable because of pollen. Now it’s also super muggy out there.

    We had to take down our feeders. We had been invaded by brown-headed cowbirds. They are a very Hitchcockian sort of bird and we had DOZENS of them — all black with a dark brown head — hanging on the feeders, scaring away everything else except sometimes the squirrels would ignore them — but even they started staying away. Finally, we gave up. There’s plenty to eat out there. We’ll put the feeders back up in late August or September. The last week we had them up, the squirrels looked just like yours. Tired. Hot and lounging on the railing!

    He looks happy enough, though a little warm. I expect he’ll burst into action at some point…
