This squirrel is really funny. I happened upon him when I went out on my deck last night. I was surprised when he didn't run away. I went back inside and got him a peanut. That started an hour of peanut tossing with the squirrel, a chipmunk, and a blue jay.
I love feeding the birds and squirrels. Not only do we get to observe nature, but we also help them get the food that they need. Although, I may have to admit I have created a monster, he now knocks at my door for nuts!
If you are interested in building your own back yard habitat, this site is a great resource.
