Probably i should modify the title, and it should read ‘two new members added to family’.
That’s how it looks like going by their activities.
Earlier also I had squirrels visiting my garden, but those visits used to be very secretive taking every care not to alert Zoya (our dog) and mostly they would pass by on top of the boundary wall without risking to come down in to the garden.
But looks like, the bottle gourd plant has given them an excellent cover where the squirrels can stay for longer period without risking coming in direct with Zoya.
On my visit to garden today morning i saw this squirrel on the trellis of my bottle gourd plant. Immediately I ran for my camera and here is what i captured.
I get a feeling these fellows have set up a nest behind the bottle gourd plant inside the pipe duct and are planning to extend their family. Or may this is just the couple’s first visit and they are trying to finalize a property. So, I wish them best of luck!!
Does any one has a suggestion on what the ‘about to be parent’ squirrels would like to have from my garden ? I can surely try growing a bit of those stuff.
