New guests.

A fellow rehabber got into a little pickle when she fell and broke her shoulder. Ouch! She had some gray and red squirrels overwintering and it was going to be a little difficult to handle with the injury. So the 7 little red's have been welcomed here. They are quite happily settled into a nice big outdoor pen!
It didn't take them long to redecorate and make this nest box their own!
Most of them are pretty shy, but there is one that will come out and chatter away while I'm in there feeding and cleaning. She likes to keep an eye on me.
It's pretty funny to sneak over there during the day when they are all out and listen to all the chattering and whistling they do.....not a quiet bunch!

Boston is just one of the gang now. All 6 boys can be found packed into the same den box together down there. He is one happy camper!


  1. SO CUTE!!!!!!!!

    we have LOTS of squirrels here...and you're right, they sure do chatter a lot to each other... especially when our milo wanders outside!! they're warning chatter is LOUD!

    happy new year to you & your furry clan!
