We enjoyed a nice time with my parents at Bay Point Park in Red Wing, Minnesota this Labor Day. The squirrels at that park are quite friendly. This female eastern grey squirrel notices a "regular" approaching, and her cute poses did not go unrewarded.
The man told me that these are bold little squirrels and do their part to keep the park clean. They pick up the picnic leftovers.
Something spooked her up a tree. But before long, she was ready for more.
The squirrels are wary of the nearby eagles and may be hiding if one is flying near by.
