I am sad
As I informed you, my parents bought a weekend house and quite a large estate - combination of trees, bushes, water. It is right next to the forrest, so the estate is full of various animals.
I love to feed birds there and we bought a special feeder for squirrels, which are very common there. That feeder has a special construction, so the seeds and nuts are not accessible by birds, only by squirrels. But as squirrels are not the sharpest crayons in the box, it took months before they finally learned how to use it and get to food.
So the last weekend we were so delighted to watch a reddish-brown squirrel sitting on the feeder and eating a nice portion of walnuts.
I was really excited and happy.
Only two hours later, I found that tiny body lying on the road, hit by a car
It was probably the same squirrel, as the fur had the same reddish-brown tone
and even if it was a different individual, I feel so sorry for a wasted life.
Bye, little squirrel
