Walking about at 7 this morning, I heard this awful screeching sound coming from a tree by the road.

There had to have been something wrong with the poor fellow because I have certainly never heard a squirrel making this noise before. It’s not often you hear a squirrel make any noise at all, let alone this sort of racket.
