I got so distracted by the pics I took with my new feeder and the pumpkin in my backyard, that I have an entire set of park photos from late October that I have completely ignored so far for Saturday Squirrel! This is good since I haven’t had the chance to add fresh pics to my collection in a while, so let’s see what this little guy is up to….
He seems to be eying those big plants along a walkway at the park entrance. Not sure what he’s going to do since they appear to be too small to climb and build a nest in, and they certainly don’t appear to be appetizing…
I do hope my tax dollars aren’t being chewed up by this little forager!
Well, he seems to be enjoying whatever those plants are…
And I love how there’s a lone spiky sweet gum ball on the sidewalk. I can’t seem to avoid them in my photos lately!
Don’t eat the plants and have a great weekend everyone!
He’s a fan of the all you can eat salad bar…….I’m not sure but if those are “canna” plants they may have given him an upset tummy – they are poisonous to some animals like horses for instance but not humans. Couldn’t find a reference to squirrels but they are pretty hardy little critters – I’m just sorry there wasn’t a little restaurant sized packet of salad dressing laying there so he could really enjoy his salad!
Thank you for identifying the plant! Hopefully those nibbles didn’t make him sick, but given that I’ve caught the park squirrels eating cheese, steak and pizza already, I think they’re probably hardy enough to withstand some icky plants…
Even squirrels need their greens.
I’d think they get enough fiber from all those nuts!
luckily it’s not barefoot weather so you don’t have to worry (too much) about those spiky balls. Have a swell weekend.
Awwwww what a cutie. All of that good eating makes his fur so fluffy and pretty. Who needs fancy salons when you can just hang out in the back yard.
I hope he’s gotten fluffier in the past two months than he looks in that picture since winter is fully in force now and it’s freezing outside!
I think they will gnaw on just about anything at least once!
Yes, probably even fingers that tried to feed them!
Maybe he’s scoping it out as a potential new playground for his little ones. Though they do look green and luscious and surely good enough to eat…
Yes, just like all those poisonous mushrooms in the forest…
What a cutie!
