Well, the squirrels have now built a nest on my windowsill (I’m three floors up), so I’ll be able to watch them from only a foot or two away for as long as they’re there. There are four of them (since they sleep in a heap, I count tails), and they seem to either be all there or all gone. This morning, when it was raining, they were sleeping with their tails over their heads, like furry umbrellas. Then they were gone for a while, and now they’re back in the sack again. Since last night, they’ve cleared away the ivy and installed a bunch of small twigs and leaves to make a bed.
I’m really glad that I’ll get to learn about squirrel habits at such close quarters, but I wish I could install a video feed to share them.
Sadly, the window is dirty outside, and has a screen, so they don’t photograph well. But they don’t seem to be afraid of me.
