The squirrels are certainly busy little guys these days. Thousands of acorns to gather up and store to eat later, along with dry grass to line and insulate their living quarters for the winter.
I previously trapped and re-located a few of the Red Squirrels to get them out of my house, so the Grey Squirrels have taken advantage and are spending more time in my yard. I got some pictures of one busy Grey Squirrel in my yard the other day.
The weather is holding onto some beautiful fall days so far, but today the temperature is very close to the freezing point. It is time to put a pair of gloves on for the morning walk. Chester isn’t happy about me delaying the morning walk until sunrise, but in a few more days we will be moving our clocks back an hour anyway, so it won’t hurt him to wait a bit today. I will move his feeding times a little later starting about 2 days before the change happens also to help ease into it.
