A squirrel family has been gathering on our deck, sometimes huddling together, with one or two getting up on the mother’s back, and then scampering off together. Random squirrels have visited our deck for years, but never an entourage such as this. Can you explain?

You just lucked out and got a chance to see Mom Squirrel taking the kids for their first outing from the nest to show them HER backyard. Pretty funny. /Gary
