They are cute.



My effort to attract Eastern Screech Owls with a nesting box resulted in the brood below.  Those are not baby owls.Baby Squirrels in Screech Owl Nesting Box

The best way to rid your yard of unwanted squirrels is Don’t Bother Trying. After they took over my Screech Owl nesting box, I decided to trap them and donate them to Pioneer Park in Sterling.  I hauled thirty-six away, below is number Eleven.  (I took pictures of them all.)  The number in my backyard remained constant.  I know of one case where the woman removed eighty-seven with similar results.  The squirrels know the necessary quota for your yard and will work to maintain that number.Squirrel #11
