Photo Share: Baby Squirrels

I had a customer say she's never seen a baby squirrel. Baby squirrels don't leave the nest until they are fully furred and can survive on their own with a little instruction from mom. Most babies leave the nest in April or May. At this point the babies are clean, fluffy, and fat while the parents look a little ragged. A second litter of babies may leave the nest around August or September. 

If anyone else would like to share a photograph of nature send it to bloubird@gmail.com with a description and permission to post it on the Friday Photo.
