The other day I noticed my cat sitting at the base of a tree staring up at a hole about four feet off the ground. Last week he caught a red squirrel so when I saw him staring up at that hole I figured it must be a squirrel nest. A few days earlier I had seen three small ones playing in the upper part of the same tree. I shooed the cat away and put my ear to the hole and could hear some scurrying around so I knew for sure it was a nest. Yesterday while doing some yard work I looked up and noticed this little guy sticking his head out of the hole. I got my camera and went back out but when I got close of course the squirrel went back into the hole. I stood in one spot for an hour and half to get this photo. I hope the cat doesn’t get him too.
