I was doing dishes, fixing breakfast and watching one of the squirrels munch on peanuts.
When suddenly the squirrel began to Alert. I thought it could be a Hawk and went out back. The squirrel ran up the trunk, but didn't leave when I came outside.
I quickly checked the sky, along the fence for the neighbor's cat. Nothing. The squirrel was still alerting very loudly. It was watching me check out all the tree branches on all the trees. Nothing.
I did not talk to the squirrel until I couldn't find any threat. It was still alerting when I went back inside. But before I 8looked at it and "I can't find anything. I think your safe." Then I went back in to make my Avocado toast.
As I did I kept an eye on the squirrel. When it went back to get some nuts, it slowly stopped chittering. And quietly ate or stored a number of peanuts in its cheek pouches. They store a lot in them.
All is quiet now. Thank goodness. But I haven't seen the cat or a hawk so far.
That squirrel trusted me. I do the same in the yard. I see or hear a hawk, I am outside with my broom.
I am hoping no hawks for now.
I found a number of Dove wing feathers in a small pile. Hoping its a moult.
