Fat Flying Squirrels

I caught this squirrel on the feeder last night. Either it is a pregnant female or it's just very fat and I wonder just how far it could glide.

Frosty Snack at the Feeder 2

You know it's cold here on the permafrost ranch, but you can really tell it is by the frost on this little one. Nonetheless, they have to eat.

Northern Flying Squirrels

Ever since the owl attack, I've not see a great deal of activity on the feeder by the Flyers. Nonetheless, I caught this little beauty on it last night. They have the largest eyes compared to other squirrels.

Owl Attack

All the time I've had feeders up, I've see several bird raptors of different types around the yard, but tonight was different. I was sitting at my desk watching two flying squirrels at the back feeder out the window, when a Boreal Owl swooped down and just nailed one. Now this feeder is part way under a overhang at the back of the house right next to window, as you can see. The squirrel got away because the owl released him when I jumped up to see and he saw me... I don't know how bad the squirrel is hurt, I looked for him outside, didn't see any visible signs of blood. So, he may have escaped with just a close call. I quickly checked the cam page for recent shots, and this is the capture I got.

Mag Pie Visitor

This guy has my number. He waits patiently for me to bring out the suet at the feeder, every day.

I want in, it's cold outside

Got this picture the other day, this little guy was checking me out...and wanted to know if he could come in a warm up a bit.
