Ready For A Long Winter?

This has to be one of the largest grey squirrels I have ever seen and I think it is mostly a thick fur coat that is making it look that way. I'm hoping that doesn't mean we are in for a long cold season ahead!

Still a lovely view to see people caring for the little ones in winter.

Oh my gosh Pat, it looks like it's wearing a big (squirrel) fur coat, its little face peeking out of the collar 😊😊

Funny thing is it sure feels like that right now. So many cold days here. I'm thinking of warmer places!

Cute photo, Pat! That little guy looks like he's made the rounds of the neighbourhood feeders (note how I spell "neighbourhood." Just like it's supposed to be spelled, right?" :))

What a cutie!
I haven't seen one of these Northern Squirrels in a while.
Lovely shot.
Have a Happy Weekend and Stay Warm, Pat :)
Peace :)

Oh yes, he is a little on the rotund side. I think he's been well fed.

And that's a BIRD feeder, is it not?

This one does look big!

Hello, it is a chubby thing. I think winter fur coats always make you look fatter, lol. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Happy Saturday, enjoy your weekend!

Dang! I'll say. :-)

Looks like he put on a few pounds!

Lois said...

Wow, that is a big one! Beautiful fur.

Tony McGurk said...

He is a big guy, Squirrels & bird feeders seem to go hand in hand

Bob Crowe said...

He or she went to the furrier and spent a lot of money.

Lea said...

Now that's a great photo!

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

That big guy could probably eat the whole feederful in one sitting.

Taken For Granted said...

We don't have any gray squirrels around here, so I am glad to see this one who looks healthy and warm in the thick fur coat.

Karl said...

Here he has food for the whole winter !
Cute.

Jack said...

He is massive! So much bigger than the little Florida squirrels I showed on my blog recently.
