Mama squirrel says: It’s really time to go.
What we’ve long called our ‘squirrel tree’ gave us a special treat this spring. A mama squirrel nested in a corner of a craggy snag that’s easy to see from the house. Most of her kit-rearing took place out of view, deeper in the tree. But when it was time for Mama to nudge the kids from the nest, we got a front-row seat to her parenting.
I’m glad I had the video cam ready. You will really want to see Mama’s get-them-out-of-the-house technique.
