Snow Treasures

That must be one cold ostrich…

It took until, naturally, Groundhog Day for us to get our first real snow of the season… and it was a doozy.  It fell a bit short of the forecasts, thankfully, since 8-12 inches was being bandied about a lot… but it was still a pretty good hit of the white stuff (More on that tomorrow).

Apparently, it was too much snow for the squirrels, as even a full day after the last flakes fell, there were hardly any critter tracks at all in my front or back yards… and none while I was watching.  At least until late yesterday afternoon, just as the sun was setting, I was able to get a few pictures of this guy.  That snow has to be really cold to be burying your head in, dude!

Seek and ye shall find!

OK, I guess that peanut was totally worth this week’s Saturday Squirrel risking brain freeze by diving deep into the frozen tundra of Evil Squirrel’s Nest….

Have a great weekend everyone!

  1. He deserves his prize – quite a dig to achieve some peanut success! Occasionally persistence pays off………..

    However do they remember where they bury their nuts?

  3. Oooh, the loop-tailed Sciurus niger hoodlum. Sadly, not rare enough.

    The only squirrels we have are ground squirrels-they don’t like to climb on cactus with those thorns.

  5. When you’re hungry, you gotta risk a little frostbite!

    He’s sure he left his nut under here somewhere…

    We don’t need a groundhog; we need a Snow Squirrel. He looks like he’s predicting an early spring!
