Noisy squirrel on the fence. I was hearing a lot of noise from that area and went to check it out, thinking it might be a bird or other animal on the other side of the fence. It turned out to be the squirrel making all the noise, and I learned that squirrels do make noise like this when they are alarmed. The noise can serve as a warning to other squirrels, or even scare off a predator that realizes it’s been spotted.


Looks like a Red-bellied woodpecker flying down out of that tree–a male with that red head.


We had rain most of the afternoon today.


And a colorful sunset.
