What the heck??
I let my dog out into the fenced in back yard, and took a peak at my water garden. I began to hear a cry up in the trees. Can't figure out what it is, since I couldn't see it......maybe a larger bird? maybe a small animal??
Anyhow......I found a large twig nest on a limb of a white pine about 15' up. Then my eyes focused on a squirrel nest up in a spindly tree trunk.....up about 30'. Then I realized there was a furry big animal laying in that nest! Would a coon climb that high to lay in a small squirrel nest on a very thin tree trunk? (about 5" diameter)
I'm wondering if it was the squirrel crying........although it did sound more like a bird's cry.
Strange. Any ideas?
