Spread eagle

Published August 18, 2005 / by Steve Berentson

We were entertained Wednesday evening by a squirrel, interrupted while she was carrying one of her infants across the front lawn. Son Mark captured this photo of mom spread eagle under a parked car, where she and her baby waited before making a final run across the street in the direction of a walnut tree. Baby was almost as big as mother, so it was an interesting sight. See “Squirreling around” in the Activities section for more photos.

About Steve Berentson
A fourth generation Skagit County native who was moved kicking and screaming from this island community in 1960. I finally reclaimed an Anacortes address in 1980, and I have been in constant celebration of my return since that time. Many of us who call Anacortes home love Fidalgo Island for its natural assets: among them are rugged beaches, pristine lakes, thousands of acres of forestland and some awesome views of the Skagit Valley and surrounding islands. Another element of my love affair with this community is its people, both natives and immigrants. They will “star” in many of my journal entries.
