It’s not unusual to see squirrels in the horse chestnut outside my kitchen window. Actually, it’s very usual!
Yesterday, I noticed this little fellow.
It was slightly unnerving, and I think the squirrel won. Squirrels don’t seem to be deep thinkers, so perhaps he was wondering if I was edible. Yesterday I also saw this goldfinch at the feeder, poised to fly into the wind.
