The squirrel, raccoon & turtle were special orders for a woman who is opening a brick & mortar shop in Little Rock. She saw the birdies in my Etsy shop & wanted to order some other animals commonly seen in Arkansas. Because I grew up in the country, I've seen my fare share of all three of these... although even living in town I have a yard full of squirrels. It seems that some sort of squirrel super highway runs through the pine trees in my backyard- I can sit outside in the summer & here them all cursing at each other high above my head. Apparently road rage happens everywhere- even in my trees.
