shedding season - for squirrels too!

It's not just dogs and cats that shed in the springtime - check out this shot of one of our squirrels that I took yesterday, you can see the areas of thick fur that have yet to fall out, leaving behind the thin summer coat. Neat, eh? Also, I saw that one of our female squirrels had BABIES!!!!! I didn't see the babies, but I saw that she had developed teats, full of milk. So I didn't mind when she ate all the sunflower seeds at the feeder (leaving none for the birdies), she has to be healthy and strong to feed her babies! I look forward to seeing them at the feeder, hopefully later this summer!
