The Squirrels Of 2021

The Nest’s 10th anniversary look back at my favorite squirrel photos I’ve taken each full year of our existence enters the final chapter today with the sciurine best of the most recent year!  Here’s our tribute to 2021!

It was the year we….. well, celebrated ten years of Nestiness with features like this!  It was the year the Shelf critters got to pick the music in my latest countdown.  2021 was the year we began sharing weekly tidbits every Sunday, and offering up SCT inspired Share Your World questions every Thursday.  It was the year X marked the spot in the Contest of Whatever, as well as the year I got to find out just how much being in the hospital sucks…

2021 produced some fine squirrels, and one last time, here are our favorites from the year that was…

You wanna help me get these building materials up to the job site?

No?  Well then GET LOST!!!

BARK! BARK! BARK! BARK!  Think I can play Fleabag in Shelf Critter Theatre?

The Amazing Spider Squirrel!

Hey diddle diddle, the squirrel jumped over the bird!

I know my car keys gotta be in here somewhere!

My fellow Americans…. blah blah blah!!!

Hey buddy?  Got some suntan lotion?

Oooh!  All the people look like ants from up here!

Can I help you?

Big Brother squirrel is watching you!

And he’s not the only one keeping an eye on what you’re doing….


You want a piece of me?  YOU WANT A PIECE OF ME!?!?!?

Hey dude!  Your wiener’s sticking out!

That’s a graceful looking pose……

GAH!  I’ve been spotted doing yoga!

Dude!  Don’t eat that spiky ball!

Green or brown, they’re gonna tear up your insides!

Mmmmmmmm….. punkin!!!

Punkin makes me HAPPY!!!!!!!!

Someone lose a ball?

We had joy, we had fun, we had squirrels in the sun….


Another Van Gogh squirrel at the park…

I wonder if Jethro Tull needs a new flautist?

Believe it or not, I’m walking on air….


And we’ll end the series on this chilly squirrel trying to eat a meal and keep his paws warm in the snow!

I hope you enjoyed my ten part look back at my favorite squirrel pics I took from 2012-2021!  The Tuesday Tenth Anniversary fun isn’t over yet, though!  Beginning next Tuesday, I’ll start an all time retrospective on one of my favorite traditions here at The Nest, the Sandy Awards!  And you won’t want to miss those cheap laughs at the expense of random searchers from the past decade!

Got room for one more squirrel in this post?

  1. oh you sure can be the new fleabag… it’s no bad part… but please to’t be buster ;O)

  2. 2021 was a good year for squirrels at The Nest. I have several faves in this batch. The “Photobomber” could also be “The Amazing Two-Headed Squirrel”….HAHAHA Can’t wait to see the Sandy retrospective……


    • I remember the Photobomber cracking me up when I took it and saw that guy had stuck his head out at the right time! Given the way they run all over the place, two heads on one squirrel body would lead to a pair of frustrated siamese twins!

    I didn’t need reminders about 2022 and 2021.

  5. Great photos and captions! I enjoyed your retrospective.

  6. 2021 was a banner year for squirrels. One of the fews things it did right last year. Looking forward to 2022 surpassing last year…in all areas! 🐿

    A much more modern-looking bunch. Gone are the flares and permed tails of yesteryear…
