We have been given a gift this week, a period of days when the temperature is well above normal. The snow is melting. It's not a pretty sight, as all of the dirt and debris of the winter, that has been covered almost daily with fresh snow, is popping into view.
But, the squirrels are in hog heaven! All winter I have been complaining that as soon as I go out and put down fresh feed, it snows again and covers it. That meant that a lot of the feed either got trampled down in the feeding area or shoveled up and thrown out with the snow, as I kept the area clean. Now that the snow is melting, all of that feed has been coming back into view. For the past two days, every time I looked out of the window, there were squirrels out there, feasting.
So, I sneaked to the window, counting as I went. One, two, three, four and five! They were all there. Welcome back Turkey Ladies!
