Nervous Squirrel

A light brown squirrel on a tree branch, looking at the camera and waving its tail so fast it's motion blurred.

I heard chattering and slowly walked toward this tree in a city park. Once I got to it, I stopped, and slowly looked around until I spotted the #squirrel up in the branches, just looking at me and waving its tail very rapidly. I took two photos, then walked away.

Two crows chased a squirrel across the lawn at a park…

Two crows chased a squirrel across the lawn at a park, one of them swooping down and possibly making contact with its claws (I couldn't quite tell) until it ran up this tree.Then they perched on a nearby fence and waited. When it tried to run down the trunk, they flew at it again and it went back up. One crow perched on another branch of the tree and waited, while the other flew off.

This house finch is clearly in Engineering. “I’m giving her all the power I can, Cap’n!”

Saw (and heard) a bunch of finches when I went to take the trash bins out this morning.

I saw this squirrel from about 20 feet away. It slowly moved toward me, pausing to pose every few feet. I think it was hoping I would feed it.
