Three For The Price Of One!

I like ordering the combo meal…

Hungry Hungry Squirrels was not the name of the game you played as a child, but it could sure describe our sciurine friends’ healthy appetites.  Squirrels not only instinctively bury sqturday squirrel logonuts and other treats throughout the year to keep food on their tables during the lean winter months, but they fatten themselves up quite nicely in the Fall to replenish their nutrition reserves… not to mention gain an extra layer of blubber insulation for those cold winter days and nights.

Here is one of my park squirrel friends from late August of last year enjoying not just an acorn, but a veritable nutty feast!  That strand he’s munching on doesn’t just have one acorn, but three of the nuts strung together!  What a find!  This week’s Saturday Squirrel sure knows how to live the high life…

Have a great weekend everyone!

    That’s a lot of nuts…

    They sure know how to pack the food away! That squirrel is such a pretty shade of brown. Even its tummy is brownish. Do you see many with that coloring there?

    • There are squirrels around here who have patches and/or stripes of brownish coloring,(particularly down their backs or in their tail) but not as full bodied as it appears on that squirrel. Maybe he really is living the high life and got a dye job!

      • Trisha says:

        You have some interesting color patterns there! My squirrels are all the same color-wise, other than the occasional white-tipped tail.

      • I really wish we had reds, though… or at least the very deep brown you’ll find in fox squirrels. As it is, some dashes of brown and the occasional fluke “blonde” of adolescent squirrels are about all the color variety I get around here…

        There is a white squirrel colony only 100 miles or so from where I live, but I don’t like the fact that they “protect” their treasure by effectively jailing them in the park…

    • How can anyone every say possums are ugly creatures after watching that video!?!? That is so adorable!!! Thank you for sharing it! I will have to have Buster eat a banana sometime in tribute to this….

  3. We live in an oak woods and have TONS of acorns … but I haven’t seen a squirrel since the spring. Are they all up high in the trees?

    • That’s exactly what I thought when I saw your NYE pictures of the trees…. how can you possibly have all of those trees and no squirrels? Bobcats or no bobcats, that place should be a veritable squirrel circus!

    You are right. I don’t know why we don’t. Maybe it’s the dogs and they are there, but don’t want to come near the barkers?
