Check out this little guy we spotted on a feeder on our front deck last night.
It was right before bedtime when Roy looked outside and saw movement on the hanging feeder on the deck. A flying squirrel! We hadn't seen one of them in a very long time.
Years ago they seemed to be much more prevalent in our neck of the woods. We would hear what sounded like a crash landing on the roof, and then one would go tromp, tromp, tromping to where he could make a short flight onto a feeder.
This fella wasn't shy at all about having his picture taken. Even as I crept closer and closer, he just kept munching away.
Just when it couldn't have been more surreal...
