The juvenile squirrels I’ve been feeding have become quite tame, and let me watch them from my office window with the blinds open. I can also watch them eating from only a few inches away without the slightest apprehension on their part (I have to stay behind the windowpane, though).
The mother squirrel, apparently pregnant again, occasionally visits for a ration of peanuts. (I’ve learned that gray squirrels have two broods per year, with the second remaining with mom in the nest over the winter.)
Anyway, after a big meal of peanuts, sunflower seeds, Virginia creeper buds, and water, this pair of siblings is taking a nap on my windowsill. I can literally lean sideways two feet to watch them as I write.
Tails make handy umbrellas when the sun is high:
