Baby Squirrels Discovered by Green Hour Group in Second Wood Duck Box

Four Squirrel Babies in Wood Duck Nesting Box: No Cleaning Today!
I have learned to knock on the Wood Duck nesting boxes before opening them after having a mouse run up out of the cedar shavings, pop through the nest hole, and stand on the top of the box giving me the evil eye. Today we knocked and said hello and an adult squirrel jumped out of the box. When we took turns peeking in we saw four baby squirrels curled up together at the bottom of the box. Sorry Wood Ducks! Go over to the vacant box by Florence's house.
