When I went to feed the birds and squirrels at 7:30 am. I saw this red squirrel but he ran away and I couldn't find him. But later at noon he came back and I got these pictures. I was really excited to see him because it's been over four years since I'd seen one. I have no idea what brought him here but we had very high winds all night and I'm thinking maybe he got displaced from his home. I'm just happy to know that there still are some red squirrels in the area.
He seemed very interested in me and would come out and sit there like that. It was still windy and the temps had dropped from 33 in the morning to 19 by afternoon. I hope he has a warm place to go to.
The Blue Jays were getting blown a bit but there were lots of them coming for food.
My one pair of cardinals. I only see these two so far.
There are a few White Throat Sparrows around and of course the House Sparrows are all over the place. That's a pair in the top right corner.
Got to love this little Tufted Titmous. So cute. It's so hard to catch a picture of them. They come and go so fast, for safety's sake.
The wind was blowing his feathers some.
