Got Acorns?

This young Grey Squirrel has made an appearance in my yard recently.  It is hunting for Acorns and Hickory Nuts to add to its Fall larder.  The Grey Squirrels here mostly live in the woods along the street in front of my little place here.  There is a fringe of mixed hard woods and Pines along the road.  The squirrels and occasionally the chipmunks will come across the open fields to grab tasty Acorns and nuts (Birdseed too don’t forget).  The Grey Squirrels are not terribly numerous here in this neighborhood.  I enjoy seeing them once in a while which is exactly what is currently the case.  I took these pictures in my yard yesterday, Oct. 18, 2012.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture.  Enjoy!

  1. we’re getting more squirrels and birds picking in them, too. so cute!

    • Hi Theresa, We are not only getting squirrels but this morning I had a real surprise in that a herd of deer ran through the yard full-tilt speed. I will post a picture or two tomorrow here. The squirrels are behaving so far. Hope that continues. Have a great weekend!

  2. I wish the squirrels around here would eat more acorns than my birdseed. Great shots. Have a happy weekend.

    We don’t see too many squirrels here- we’ve got a few Red-tailed Hawks and not many trees. They are fun to watch though. Cute photos you took. 🙂

  4. The squirrels that we have here are very small compared to that grey squirrel and this time of year they look nearly black. It’s good that they have acorns in your area.
