    Sweet! Isn't it funny how you get attached to the little wild critters you see?

    We've been watching a squirrel that comes to clean up after the birds under our feeder. The other day, the squirrel had a huge piece of fur missing from it's shoulder and it looked like something had tried to skin him. Anyway, he looked like he was healing yesterday. I was glad to see that. Guess it just wasn't time for him to be a hawk's lunch!

    My kitties and I love watching the wildlife.

    The male and female mallard ducks just returned to our pond as they do each spring. They make me happy.

    As much as I love Spring babies- I have a grey squirrel that dug a hole into the eaves of my house this year! Need to wait til the newborn babes move out and put up a new piece of wood. Grrrr.

    Today was our first "chippy" sighting too! Only here he's referred to as Mr. chippy! He was scavaging underneath the bird feeder. (We only refer to Mr. Chippy...never Mrs.!!) Waiting for the the others to show...we usually have 2-3 at a time.

    This reminds me of the years in Keller, TX, when we had 3 squirrels that we recognized from their appearance and their personalities. They fed on the deck railing from a 12" potting saucer.
    One we called BB because he was a male with the biggest....well, cajones.....we'd ever seen on a squirrel! I constantly worried he's "strip" himself jumping from tree to tree.
    Another was Big Mama because she was the bossiest, I-take-over-and-get-served-first-at-the-dish squirrel int he pack. All others backed off and allowed her to "reign".
    And the last was Little Bit. We didn't know the first year that maybe this squirrel was just a miniature, but he returned the 2nd year still little and curious and lively as a 'toddler.

    We so enjoyed those silly creatures! They would come sit at the dish and chatter until we came out and filled it again if it was empty; and finally BB would eat out of my DH hand as long as he was quiet, slow to approach, and gentle.

    We don't have to own our furry friends to enjoy them. The hummingbirds used to come to the window and watch our Amazon parrots (those are the green ones pictured on pirates' shoulders). We kept guessing what the hummers thought of our parrots. The same hummers used to knock on my sewing room window if the feeder ran dry.
