Bluebird Squirrel?

This is one of our Bluebird houses.  While we are sure the Bluebirds are not using the home right now, we weren’t too happy when we saw this little bluebird squirrel try to make his way into their summer home.   Our yard is a squirrel’s heaven with lots of Black Walnut trees scattered about… Continue reading Bluebird Squirrel?

Regardless of your perspective, these tiny little creatures provide hours of “entertainment” when their hijinks collide with human activities.
