We just had our second visit ever to our backyard feeders by a black phase Gray Squirrel. I wanted to add a picture but it got spooked up a nearby tree by some noise outside. So far it hasn’t returned.
Well, I was just saying my Hummingbirds are not gone yet but here it has now been almost 4 days without seeing one little hummer out back at any of the feeders. I’m starting to think they’ve left early this year. The last two years our final sightings were September 29th and 30th!
We have a new visitor out back. Smelled something skunky quite a few mornings but this is the first time we actually observed this skunk out back eating under our feeders! It ate some sunflower seeds apparently and then went sniffing in high speed all over the yard like it was looking for something else? But what?
