backyard notes

I heard the squirrel at my door again, and fed him more nuts, and then noticed there was another squirrel who looks to have the same problem. mb looked it up, & to our sad discovery, this baby may not make it. They have drugs to treat this, but it's controversial since keeping a large population of squirrels makes the disease spread more easily. And most would say that it weeds out the weakest, which is necessary in such an overpopulated species. i still get sad to see the lil' thing suffering. I'm worried for the cold storm of tomorrow.
