Someone New

I came out the back door to take a picture of the white flowers, and scared this little guy out from under the feeder. At first glance I thought it was a cat, so I stomped on the landing and hissed at it. It bolted across the yard and started up the back side of the tree. When I realized what it was, I just sat down quietly on the steps. I could hear it stop climbing, and then it peeked at me from around the trunk. I said, "It's all right, I'm a friend of Dora's!" and it relaxed. Climbed down the tree, watched me for a moment, then walked along the top of the fence and into the next yard. If anyone hasn't met Dora, she lives here
