As you may already know, we have been watching a squirrel’s nest outside our office window for a while now. We have seen him? her? in the courtyard area and in the alley, but the only time it was seen entering or leaving its nest, we did not have a camera handy.
Until this afternoon!
You can see it holding an object (probably some food item) as it enters the nest, remains only long enough to put away the object, exits the nest, and then scampers down and across to the second floor deck area.
Okay, so maybe it’s not that exciting to those of you who live in areas where wildlife is abundant, but hey, this is downtown Chicago and I’ll take what I can get in the way of critters. But no, I will not be filming urban rats as my next wildlife project!
