I’m having so much fun watching the antics of the squirrels and birds on the deck. The squirrels hang upside down from the bird feeders and swing back and forth, stuffing their mouths with bird seed. A pair of cardinals aren’t very happy with them. Sometimes, two of the squirrels will squabble over the food, and one will lose his grip and hit the ground. The snow provides a soft landing and he tries again. Also, the puffy snow adds to the picture.
Here's one I bet you didn't know; October is National Squirrel Awareness Month. How did I find this out? From Chase's Calendar of Events, the much touted book for us library displayers and bloggers. Just browsing through this book, you can find some really interesting events. There is a website, as well; squirrelloversclub.com is the name of this site. Now, some people don't appreciate squirrels like these folks. But, it was a fun website to visit.
