Flirting with the Boys
Location: Geauga County, Oh USA
She is back!!! It’s been many months since she last visited me, and I was beginning to worry that something horrible had happened to her. And then MUCH to my surprise, I looked out my window, only to see her beautiful blue eyes scanning the feeders to see what she had to look forward to. Lucy is a partially Leucistic Fox Squirrel that calls my backyard her home.
She stayed in my backyard for a good three hours yesterday and just gorged on the sunflower seeds and peanuts. She would take the occasional break and go up onto a limb above the bird feeder and would literally lay down on her belly with her legs dangling to each side and her chin resting on the limb below her. This was perhaps one of the cutest things I have ever seen!
Seeing her beautiful little face just makes me so happy. I truly love this little squirrel, as she just brings me so much joy.
Now I can breathe a big sigh of relief knowing that she is alive and well. As the matter of fact, not only is she alive and well, but I do believe there is a chance that she became a Mommy during her absence from my feeders. I’m not positive about this, but I am pretty certain based on her physical appearance.
