Eating While It's Sleeting

By SocksAndStuff
Red Squirrels do love their nuts, most of all Hazelnuts, they can't get enough of them. They seem to know that they can bury the Hazelnuts and they won't rot, so they keep coming back for more, more, more. The thing is, they are so gorgeous you just can't deny them. They also love raw Peanuts in shells, but if you fill a container full of both, they pick out the Hazelnuts first.

Whatever the weather does they still come for their nuts. One ran off with some pear I'd put out for the birds! One even tried to sneak past me to get at the nut bag. So cheeky but so cute!
