Humans tend to be messy creatures. It’s one of those animalistic traits that thousands of years of civilization hasn’t quite beaten out of our species yet. Get a whole bunch of people together in one place where they’re going to be eating and drinking, and you’ll likely need a whole team of maids to clean up after them…
Case in point…. have you ever looked underneath the stands of the softball diamond at your local park? I took a photo once of the mess that was left behind under the bleachers at a Major League Baseball game… and while drinking alcohol in the city park is verboten, there are plenty of other kinds of snacks to partake of while watching out of shape adults try to play an easier version of baseball. And many of those snacks are crowd pleasers for our squirrel friends…
Look at all of those empty sunflower seed and peanut shells left behind under the bleachers! Plenty of free food that doesn’t have to be unburied first! This week’s Saturday Squirrel is getting his fill while cleaning up the edible mess the spectators left behind. All natural environmental sustainability in action…
Have a great weekend everyone!
And a large belch was heard, shaking the bleachers.
Ah, hell yeah, Mr. Squirrel says.
That reminds me of a lot of ballgames I attended.
Talk about batting clean up! Here’s hoping you have a good holiday weekend.
That’s a much more eco-friendly mess than you’ll find at your local big league stadium. I feel sorry for those cleaners…
Even though humans are slobs, it’s encouraging to see that SOMETHING benefits from our “slob-ness”……..for the squirrels it’s an all you can eat buffet!
And they don’t have to pay ballpark prices for the food!
Awwwww. What a cutie. Give that squirrel some fresh peanuts!
And Cracker Jacks…
I bet he was also a fan!
This squirrel is a fan of the fans….
I see what you mean 😀
As soon as I find out what a softball diamond and a bleachers is, I’ll be sure to go look for snacking squirrels!
Check near the cricket pitch…
Cue the clean-up crew! I can hear the squirrel chorus: Take me out to the ball game…!
The sundlower seed shells may be mine buy not the peanut shells
