12 Days of Christmas, 4-Bears T-shirt, Flying Squirrels- UPDATE December 5, 2017

Pond-Chatters are currently working on a cute adaptation of the 12 Days of Christmas for the Bear Center. Here is a link to the 2014 version: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JfIruqlCPHA Flying squirrelFlying squirrel

I love the new Bear Center t-shirt and want to get one. Click here to see. It’s a new version of last year’s 4-bear t-shirt that I liked. I suspect you’d like it, too.

Out the window after dark, northern flying squirrels share sunflower seeds on the railing more peacefully than red squirrels do. These two flying squirrels were comfortable this close together. They hardly seemed to notice each other. Red squirrels would be sitting up chattering or challenging each other when they were still farther apart. A big gust of wind would make these two flying squirrels run to a tree, though. I included a red squirrel to show the difference in their faces.

Thank you for all you do.
