A message from our friends at Wild Care Cape Cod in Eastham:

Absolutely precious! Because these baby Eastern Grey Squirrels need around the clock feeding, we take turns babysitting! Last night was my turn! I know some think they can grow to be "nuisances" but they have a place in this world too! Enjoy!

Earlier Post from Wild Care:


Look Who's Here! The first squirrels of the season, and they are quite early. These squirrels were found in a truck engine. The truck had not been used in some time, and a squirrel nested in it. The finder tried placing the nest near the truck for several hours, but the mother did not return. There were 5 squirrels, but one was badly injured and did not survive. These guys are a critical age, and require round-the-clock feedings by our skilled staff.

Now is a good time to start checking under your dormant vehicle hoods, boat motors, grills, lawnmowers etc. before you use them this spring. Checking/starting up engines and equipment on regular basis will discourage wildlife from nesting there. Please give wildlife a chance to relocate on their own so they are not abruptly displaced!
