Squirrel Lovers Awareness Month

According to the Squirrel Lovers' Club, October is Squirrel Awareness Month!

Squirrel_2 The Squirrel Lover's Club is an international organization open to squirrel lovers of all ages. The club was started in 1995 and has over 2500 members. The club offers a newsletter and special events and their site has lots of information about -- you guessed it -- squirrels!

I took this photo in a New York City park last spring. It wasn't until I transferred the image to my computer and took a closer look that I realized I got a shot of a mother squirrel who had been nursing!

I hope that by offering this post I have done my part to increase awareness of squirrels.
