Yep, that time of year again and I will miss the festivities. The time of year we honor the rodents of the garden and forests, appreciate the little tree climbers and offer a few nuts of gratitude for the little fellows.
Did you know that squirrel behavior sometimes changes in winter? Some of the squirrels will leave their leafy balls in the trees and search out warmer places to nest. They look for a hollow tree to stuff the leaves for a cozy abode.
Squirrels also have some good points, that is if you are not plagued by them. They are acrobatic and pretty darn smart, the combination that gets them into worlds of trouble. But their biggest contribution is that they plant trees. Can you think of a better gift to the environment?
Well, since it’s their day, let’s get out there and shoot them. With a camera, silly, what did you think I meant?
Also, spare a few nuts.
The squirrels will appreciate you too.
Last year’s tribute…. here.
