Neuman Finds a Home
Topic: Around the House

We have had these kind of squirrels at our house for about 25 years - after our god was no longer with us.


This one is enjoying some slivered almond on the deck.

 

This year, for the first time ever, we have some new guys who have moved in.


We think they are California Gray squirrels. There are a lot of differences between the two, beyond the odd 'paint job' on this guy. He almost looks like he would be bristly like a hedgehog but It sure makes him blend in.

OLD SQUIRRELS:

climb trees easily, eat one nut or seed at a time holding it in their hands and biting off parts,have tufts on their ears, good wire-walkers, live in the trees, run with their tails down, will stand at the back window peering in to beg for nuts.

NEW  SQUIRRELS:

have a harder time getting up trees, scoop up seeds by the mouthful and chew it up hulls and all, have smaller untufted ears, sometimes walk on wires by hanging upside down rather than balancing on top, live in burrow, run with their tails straight up like a chipmunk, will run and hide if they catch a glimpse of you in the window even if they are 20 feet away.

We saw that these were hanging out on top of posts so they could see around the area around the burrows so we make some that stood up higher. They like to get on top and remind you of meercats!

 

We call these guys 'Neuman' because they are the new men in the neighborhood.
