Spring has definitely “Sprung” in Rhinelander! The other day my co-worker and I were outside enjoying a break, and the beautiful weather, when we noticed a small gray squirrel crawling around the bottom of a tree. We were both amazed at how small it was, and then realized it was a baby squirrel!
Neither one of us had ever seen a baby squirrel before, although we both are long time WI residents. After watching the little guy go up & down a foot or two, and then crawling around on the ground we heard a loud, sharp squeak. We both looked up, wondering what bird that was. Well it wasn’t a bird at all but instead another baby squirrel! Not just one either – there were three more about 10 feet up in the tree! We enjoyed them for quite some time before I ventured back inside to get the camera and grab a few quick photos.
I later heard other co-workers had seen the baby squirrels, and were trying to chase away large crows that seemed to be taking too great an interest in our new friends! We’re all looking forward to seeing more of these cute little squirrels.
