Young Squirrels Out in the Backyard –
The new graduates of the Backyard Youth Squirrel Academy are out and about en mass – not sure exactly how many as they don’t hold still long, but something on the order of six to 8. They are out exploring the Backyard in May and generally more interested in checking things out and frolicking than looking for food – that will soon change. Note toward the end when an adult comes down to chase them out of the tree that you can then see the relative size difference. The young ones have nice bright white belly fur and energy to spare – just don’t be tempted to mess with the Marsh Rabbits.
