I was surprised to see that at least some of the squirrels remember the free food from our window, and now that snow has returned to Chicagoland, they have returned for freebies. I was on the computer this morning when I saw this little guy waiting at the window for a treat. I went and got a remnant from a failed attempt at Christmas cookies and put it out on the ledge while he waited for the treat from the cherry tree.
He was happy for the sweet feast and I was happy for a good shot of one of my favorite little backyard critters. This squirrel has been the subject of many of my pictures in the last week or so... or I think its the same squirrel. I am starting to wonder if he will be happy with plain old peanuts again after the burnt cookies are gone.
