May 2, 2011-Mother Squirrel Repairing Nest Again

I spotted mommy squirrel up near her old nest and she was breaking twigs off and taking them to that nest. If she was doing that then I figured she must have moved her babies back up to that first one again. I did not see her move them though.

She'd take a few then relax before she started working again. I have never seen a squirrel work so hard.

This is one of the babies from back in the woods. I am seeing more of them now and really enjoy watching them.

Here's the mother again in the evening doing more repair work.

Busy, busy busy

She finally stopped and relaxed then went into the nest for the night. Did not see any of the babies at this time.

The female Gray Fox sitting under the bush eating her treat.

Later after dark the other two fox mates were out there until this skunk showed up. Then they left. That skunk had it's tail high up but it never sprays the foxes.
