    Boyd, have you sent your minions to NJ? Young squirrels are venturing out and getting hit on the road. Today I saw 2 standing beside the road where their "brother" got hit yesterday. Either they were practicing for an insurance commercial or they were saying, "No, you go first." Yesterday I saw a red/buff phase gray squirrel (never saw one before) and today I saw a black phase gray squirrel. Has the squirrel become my totem? And why would that be? [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Ours never bother eggs- I often leave eggs in a basket outside by accident and they are never touched!

    I feed my squirrels...I have a gazillion and pecan, walnut, oak, and fruit trees. Love the little boogers.

    I do have one sans tail...apparently was blessed within an inch of his life during a road-crossing. He doesn't use the electrical wires for sky-bridges the way the others do as his balance is awful in comparison.

    I'm guessing they just like you. [​IMG]

    I resque injured and/or orphaned squirrels. I just released two brothers. One of my females is pregnant, and due any time!
    I have lost count of how many that I have raised and released..But they all come everyday for handouts, and to give me kisses and use me as a tree..lol
