Proud Mama Squirrel

We have a female squirrel that lives in the "V" of our Oak tree in the backyard.  We call her Mama Squirrel.  We knew she had babies because we would hear them cry for her and you could see that she had been nursing.   We finally saw one of the babies venture out of the nest with proud Mama Squirrel.  So sweet...

You can see that Mama is checking for trouble.  I can actually relate to Mama Squirrel because I've always done my best to keep my baby safe also.

I'm a big boy now :)

Oh how cute! He is a sweet little fellow. I'm glad mama is keeping a close eye on him as he grows. You are so lucky to be able to watch this little family. I rarely see babies, usually they are almost as big as their parents before I see them.

big boy is adorable! so sweet and so is his mama. during the summer we enjoyed each morning watching 4 babies follow their mama from limb to limb. the babies are so cute and they chased each other like kids do, running in circles with each other like ring around the rosy.

aw, how cute they are. So much fun to watch too. Last year the squirrels that visited the tree in my front yard kept me very entertained.
