These two rascals visited our yard last night. I had to lure Maude into the house with a bit of meat (courtesy of the omnivores in residence!) or she would have terrorized these little twins. I snapped a few quick photos while the dog was ignoring me, but then left them alone to calm down, once I got Maude in the house. I watched them from the window until the sun went down, as they clung to the top of the slender birch. They must have slipped away quietly during night.
