Red Poles at the Feeder
Such pretty little birds at the feeders, Common little Red Poles. Today was a sad day, this morning upon awakening, and letting out the dogs. I notice a little body laying in the snow bank out beside the feeder. It was one of my little Alaskan Northern Flying Squirrels. Something, most likely an owl had gotten him, he was headless and half eaten. The dogs must have spooked the predator away. The squirrels come to my feeder to eat, not to be eaten. I know it's part of nature but nonetheless, it still not a good thing to see.
