A New Neighbor Moved In!

The other morning as I walked out to start my car, I noticed some scurrying in the driftwood pile at our neighbor’s storage building. I took a step closer to the building and the critter darted into a hole in the side of the building. I thought maybe it was a mouse or a squirrel but a second later it popped it’s head out and just stared at me and saw a short-tailed weasel staring right back at me still in his winter coat. I ran upstairs to get my camera and came back and there he was, still watching. I snapped a few images and after a little bit of time, the weasel decided to crawl out of the hole and came closer to me for a better look. What a curious animal!
