Hi Lynne,
This looks like my yard, except you have lots more snow ! Although, I may have more squirrels and today, a nice surprise, 5 Red-winged Blackbirds (SW Michigan). So, Spring is on the way and I hope soon.

LauraHinNJ said...

Lynne I don't think spring is ever going to come to Minnesota from the looks of that poor squirrel - he's buried up to his eye balls!

Doesn't he have the sense to stay in his tree or whatever? Guess he must be really hungry.

Thanks for the laugh!

I also see snow! LOL - you have a very cute squirrel there!

Lynne said...

Sara- We rally got pounded with snow last weekend. Red-winged blackbirds? Send them my way!!
Thanks for visiting!

Laura- The squirrels were tunneling under the feeders to get fallen seed. I don't think we'll ever get spring either...

Mon@rch- Snow...I'd say you can have it but you've had plenty too!

Mary said...

Lynne, I giggled out loud at that first dang squirrel peeking from the snow! This is hilarious. I don't care for squirrels in my yard but it's darn cold and they need to eat, too!

When will that snow STOP?!!!

Again, thanks for the laugh. Hang in there and I'll be praying for your thaw.

Cathy said...

Yep - it's the first picture that cracks me up. He looks more like a prairie dog peering from his mound.

I've finally relented and am throwing seed off the back deck for the squirrels. Guess who now has every squirrel within several square miles knocking on her patio doors.

We're due for more snow tonight. Do ya think we've had enough?

Lynne said...

Mary- Thw snow is so deep I actually threw half a bag of seed on top of the snow just for the squirrels.

Cathy- I thought it looked like a prairie dog too! More snow??

NOOooooooooo...o...o...o...o...o...

They may be a pain in the ass, but squirrels sure are cute.

Larry said...

First one looks like he's on a covert operation.

We have 5 regular squirrels in our yard. I have been throwing peanuts and seeds on the ground for them too as the snow is so deep and it is so cold here. They are entertaining in a bratty sort of way. I love your pictures.

After a few years, a red squirrel finally figured out how to jump on to our feeder. Normally I'd chase it away but I'm feeling sorry for the littel guy!

Lynne said...

Susan- They are destructive but cute in a rodenty kind of way.

Larry- He's a special-ops squirrel!

Ruth- I've been feeding them this winter too. Bratty is right!

Deb- I've never had a red squirrel here at home but they're up at Hasty. They sure are cheeky little devils!

LauraO said...

OK - I'm going to admit it right here and now. I love squirrels. There. I've said it. We have both gray and reds here, and I never tire of their antics. I just make sure there's enough to go around, and everybody is just fine with that. Really enjoyed the photos.

Lynne said...

LauraO-
You know what? I like them too! I do hate that they destroy bird feeders, but by a process of elimination I only have chew-proof feeders left in my yard. I've found that if I put feed out for them on ground tray feeders, they tend to stay off the high feeders- so everyone's happy! They are clever and very entertaining to watch. There. I've said it too!

OK, dagnabbit! I figured out that the problem was only in Firefox. When I use Safari to open everyone's blogs I can again see the letter verfication! Not sure what THAT issue is, but until it's resolved, I'll just create posts in Firefox and read in Safari! Harumph!

Love the snowy 007 squirrels and LOVE you Lynne!!!

Lynne said...

Thanks Jayne :)
back atcha!!

I had ninja squirrels digging under my feeders after the snow too!

I love the little head of the squirrel peaking up out of the snow - it's so cute, even though squirrels are a pain around the feeders.

Lynne said...

Hellziggy- Ninja squirrels- I like that!!

Pam- They are a pain but we've worked out a truce in my yard!
