How can you not adore a squirrel?

In Australia, we are one of two continents that are squirrel-less. Now I live in Canada and there are squirrels everywhere!

In our new place in the country, we have squirrels that live in the tree outside our kitchen window.

A couple of weeks ago, as I peered out the window watching a squirrel busily prepare for winter, my little friend had a case of mistaken identity. He momentarily confused himself for a flying squirrel. He leapt from one tree to another and completely missed the branch he was aiming for. He fell to the ground like a sky diver without a parachute.

Fortunately, he is well and is comforting himself with a good feed.
