Bitter sweet squirrel

The owl box finally has some activity although it isn’t the feathered type. This afternoon my 4 year old accidentally switched the TV to the owlcam and she nearly jumped out of her skin when she noticed tiny little pink babies squirming around. Nope these little guys aren’t feathered, but they are still pretty cute. Generally squirrels are the enemy, especially during prime owl nesting season, but at the moment there’s a cease fire. In a funny way, it’s kinda nice to have something using the box for its intended purpose. Hopefully I’ll get some owls in the box next year – for now it’s a kick watching the squirrel mamma feeding her babies.
