Nuts

We had a hickory tree in our backyard that sadly had to be cut down a couple months ago. The squirrels loved it. They would run through it and drive the dogs crazy...lol. They also got their food from it.

When the tree was cut down, I picked up as many nuts as I could from the ground. I left them in a bucket on the patio and forgot about them. I noticed squirrels were leaving shells all over the stump where the tree was. I had missed alot of nuts....I felt them with every step I took back there!

Recently Thumper has been more vocal than usual when he's looking out the door. I didn't give much thought to it. Then I noticed that the bucket had been moved (hubby had moved it) and there were shell pieces all around it. Looks like the squirrels moved their eating place, and it is about 10 ft from where Thumper watches them. Watching him watching them makes for good entertainment!

  2. The squirrels must think they've hit the jackpot! They don't even have to work at getting to those nuts! :)
