Friends in my garden- 70

Adorable Squirrel

On my terrace

The Indian palm squirrel (Funambulus palmarum) is native to the warm, humid areas of the southern Indian subcontinent. The species is known for the distinctive three stripes across its back and is also called the Three-striped palm squirrel.
Highly adapted to urban life, these adorable critters are always seen around my house. They even venture to build their nests in the corners of the windows, gnawing at the wooden frame, much to our chagrin.
Indian palm squirrels prefer to feed on nuts and fruits. They are also believed to eat certain insects and caterpillars etc, making them omnivorous.
These critters are always busy, vocal and unlike other squirrels they do not hibernate.
I have captured different actions of their busy schedule ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Before moving to an apartment, I created a wildlife garden especially for the animals and birds where I lived. Great way to stay close to nature, and extremely entertaining to watch them as well

    Great information for nature and garden lovers
