    I’ve not seen anything like that in N.C. so bring me him & several females so I can turn’em loose in my back yard
    they’d fit wright in with all my other critters that I’ve got

    Oh he is so pretty. Wonder if this species has many predators since he is so brightly colored. I am still feeding all my doves-lots of them. Had a yard full of robins for several days, but haven’t seen them today. Maybe they flew on with the report of snow coming. Still trying hard to get my squirrels back that those 4 big dogs ran off. No nests around my house that I can see. Keep putting out the food thinking, “Feed them and they will come.” Did see one eating today. So glad those people got so many citations and moved. I almost truly believe they got kicked out. Wish the house behind me wasn’t a rent house if the renters are going to make my squirrels leave. Hubby said today maybe they aren’t returning because he saw that huge hawk again. I hope they are safe wherever they are! Almost baby squirrel time, Bob.

    Hi munford, Have you ever thought of putting up nesting boxes for your squirrels? If you provide food, shelter and water, what more can you do? After that I think it’s just a matter of time. If there is squirrels around they will fill that niche and find your spot.
