Lucky for Rowdy he was one fat very wiggly little baby that must have been too much for the crow to hold on to. I took this photo of him after I had fed him his first meal away from mom. Since I had never raised a baby squirrel before I headed to the internet for help, found a site with lots of information and some wonderful ladies that told me everything I needed to get him to grow up to be big, beautiful and healthy. One interesting note. I was told that to know his birth date that all I had to do was wait for his eyes to open count back 5 weeks and that should be just about when he was born. I waited for a few weeks, his eyes opened, counted back, born Aug.3. his birth date, is the same day as mine! He will be 11 years old, on Aug.3rd. I will be somewhat older, however.
