Well, we've finally had a few spring like days in a row and since Friday I've spent hours by the bird feeder. At least an hour in the morning than another couple in the afternoon. When you stay still long enough even the shy critters realize you're not a threat and come closer than normal. This squirrel was feeding on the seeds and corn I put out for it when it decided to climb up on a board I have out there and relax in the sun. It actually was nodding off, that's a true sign that a wild creature is not threatened; when it goes to sleep in front of you. While it was lying there I noticed that scabbed wound on its neck. I have a few of these squirrels around and they're always chasing each other away from the food so this one must've been on the losing end of a fight.
