Trying to stay warm...

...on a cold blustery day.  This was last week during our "deep freeze" when temps here were about 20 and the wind was brrrisk.



Poor little guy...

Poor little guy was trying to figure out how to get into your bird feeders!

It is sad to think about all the little critters out in the cold. Guess they manage okay for the most part.

He needs a little jacket and hat. We should get Judy and Allison on that! :)

They usually chew their way in. Or did mine. Now i just throw peanuts in the shells out to them each morning.

I'm awfully glad I'm not a squirrel.

Doesn't it seem he would try to find a place that would protect him from the wind? Maybe it's too dangerous to be low.

Jennifer said...

Hes cute... but I'm so glad I dont have any like him in my yard, lol

Louise said...

Poor little fellow. But, it looks like he's got some fat to keep him warm. Probably all gained at the expense of your feeders.

Judy said...

Aww...He does look cold. He's just no used to the cold temps :)

Dar said...

awww, love the way Squirrely has his tail wrapped around the branch above. He does look cold, but, I'm sure he was warmer than you with that fine winter coat.

Deb said...

I know the ones around here were trying to find a warm place..good photos..

Eyeliquor said...

Nice to see how he flipped it's tail over that branch :)

beth said...

that tail kills me....was there ice on the branches ? or maybe he just generally has a balance issue :)

texwisgirl said...

Beth - it was really windy that day, so I'm guessing he's using it for extra limb grasping.

...really a sweet guy:)

Makes me want to post my squirrel pics, when you put cute one's up. But my blog is about dogs. Squirrels and dogs do not go well together. ha ha

Millie said...

So cute! I bet he'd like a nice big ear of corn to eat from too.

You know, I find myself coming back now just for the tree rats. Don't know why. LOL!
