Have a seat (:
What do you love to sit on?
Eastern Bluebird- sitting in a hunk of lard
House Finch- sitting on an elderberry branch.
Tufted Titmouse- also on the elderberry.
American Red Squirrel- The Tyrant sitting on a snowy wall.
Red squirrels clip and gather truffles and other fungi and and lay them in tree branches to dry in the sun.
The females mate with 4-16 males the few hours they’re in estrous…getting the job done I say. The freaks don’t even care if they’re related.
This 6 inch guy is so territorial he's scary. Every time I look out of the window he's chasing one of the other squirrels away from the nut pile. He stood on the back on a patio chair a few feet from my face unwavering while I looked for my snowboard in the shed. I call him The Tyrant.
