The animals that live along the boardwalk in Summerside, Prince Edward Island, are admired by the many walkers along the trail by the harbour. During the work day, retired citizens frequent the trail, often stopping to watch the animals and speak about them.
On one of our recent visits, people were concerned about an area of the trail which, up until recently, was a favourite haunt of squirrels and numerous other animals.
Finally, one gentleman came along who reported about a white weasel that had taken up residence in this area, causing the regular residents to scatter.
As we walked further along the trail, another area of the boardwalk had numerous squirrels
and chickadees where none had lived before.
Our grand-dog, Georgie was fascinated with the squirrels
and would have stayed to watch them if we had not coached her along.
The squirrels, accustomed to leashed dogs, ignored her.
Unleashed weasels on the other hand...
They are definitely smarter than we give them credit for aren't they?
Gorgeous images. Thank you for this cooling walk.
Such pretty animals and your dog is lovely!The squirrels and your dog are going to play together someday.(#^.^#)！
It's amazing how those little creatures survive winter.
They are cute, but destructive little critters. I used to feed the birds, and the squirrels would get into every single feeder, whether or not they were "squirrel proof" or not. :-)
Your squirrels are so cute! the seem shorter (less length) than ours! Andrea
A weasel or other member of that family is always a nightmare to find, especially when they visit those of us with backyard ponds. I find squirrels very helpful in exercising our dog in the backyard. :-)
It seems that they knew just what to do.
They have good instincts, EC.
The dog would love to "play" with the squirrels, Tomoko.
It really is, Debra.
Squirrels are aggressive but cute. We are so taken with the cute that we overlook the rest, Jan.
They are probably a smaller species that your, Andrea.
I can imagine how much exercise the dog gets with squirrels in the back yard, Judith.
They certainly do, AC.
I observed some regular animals & birds like that on the morning walk when we stayed at the Orcas Island.
Like the look of the chickadee.
Beautiful pictures you captured of the cute little fellows! Amazing that you got a picture of the weasel too. My dogs love chasing squirrels too, hard to get them to do anything once they see one, lol!
Chickadees are very tame and will eat from your hand, H.
Sadly, no picture of the weasel, SUI. Just squirrels.
Thank you, HW.
