Backyard squirrels

What a quiet place our yard would be without the activity of the squirrels as they scurry among the pine trees.  At this time of the year, they are particularly busy collecting or munching on seeds and nuts.

“People look at me like I’m a little strange, when I go around talking to squirrels and rabbits and stuff.  That’s ok.  That’s just ok.”  ~Bob Ross

    • We mainly have the Eastern gray squirrel and the fox squirrel, though there is a town in West Tennessee that also has white squirrels. I’d love to get a picture of one of those.

      • I bet we don’t. If you live near stagnant water,they are going to be really bad.
        If you loive where there is no water (ie:desert) there will be very few or none.
        So It all depends how close you live to water. Not salt water btw,fresh water only. So because we do not have a lot of fresh water you most likely have much more than us.
        They are attracted to CO2,so don’t breath : )

      • Breathing — I guess that’s what I’m doing wrong. 🙂 Our area has a lot of standing rainwater and warm, moist air in the summertime — mosquito breeding grounds.

  1. I agree wholeheartedly with Bob Ross’ quote – I talk to the squirrels and birds at the Park and around the house and whistle at the birds as well. That is a cute collection of gray squirrel photos – the pecan is almost as big as that squirrel’s head!
