I thought those were leaves hanging on the trees. Then I cropped the rather huge picture way down in size and suddenly, I realized there are no leaves on the trees. It’s the beginning of March. There won’t be any leaves for another three months.
So what were those things hanging on the tree? If not leaves, then what are they?
It turns out it is a mass of flying squirrels. For some reason, last night we didn’t have any raccoons, but we had a plethora, a big gathering of flying squirrels. In the air, on the feeders, in the tree.
I wonder why we didn’t get any raccoons?
