Awww! Baby squirrels.
Awww! Baby Squirrels.
I looked out my bedroom window the other morning and to my surprise was a mama squirrel and her baby. She was nursing right there in the grass! I was surprised to see them in such a vulnerable spot since I have three dogs and three cats! In the process of running for my camera I missed out on a great picture but I was able to catch a few other great shots through out the day. It's definitely Spring in Montana. Baby squirrels running around the yard, baby leaves on the trees, the birds are busy getting their nests ready and recently we've been entertained by an Osprey family that has made a new nest near our home. (I'll try for pictures of the Ospreys)
Later on in the day when I went to look out the window and check on the squirrels I noticed there were three baby squirrels! They are so cute. They learn from watching their mom. She was guiding them along the fence tops. She would move a little ways then stop and wait for them to catch up.
She showed them exactly what to do and when to do it.

Carol: Thought I would share the picture of our squirrel that I caught this morning .... we have named him "Rocky!" We do not know if there is a Mrs. Rocky or baby Rockies at this point in time!
