Squirrels digging up nuts







 Many times, I see squirrel coming to my garden and digging up a nut.

He knows where he put them and when he is hungry he goes to his storeroom.

Toad stools












 I went back to the place where I found toad-stools last year.

It was then a great surprise for me finding them. As I then thought I had missed them all because I was not able to go and search for them.

At first I did not see any. but when I looked better I saw two red ones! Maybe a bit small...

But to my relief it was something which is better that nothing. Then when I looked better, to my surprise I saw lots of small beginnings of toadstools as a small white dot.

That means I have to go back soon to see if they have grown.

Squirrels nuts








 The walnut tree of my neighbour is empty.

The squirrels have gathered all the nuts they could find and stored it safely everywhere. I wonder if they remember where they put them. And yes they do. I regularly see them digging up a nut and take it someplace else.

I think because of the great supply of nuts they have temporary hidding places to store them quickly to save time. lots of them I found in my plant-pots. Now they have more time they redig them in better places. So smart!

drinking




 Every day squirrel comes for a drink and robin as well comes to have his share.

He perfectly matches with the beechnuts that are falling all over the place.

Blackbird molting2





Blackbird has lost all his feathers on his head. He looks weird, however he does not seem to have any problems with an inferiority complex or what's so ever.

He is as confident as always, birds don't mind at all.

Squirrel and nut









 2 squirrels are running to and fro through my garden to the neighbours wallnuttree.

Then they store the nuts in my garden and also in the wood nearby.

Today I caught one of them, (the darker one,) with a fresh picked nut. He peeled it quickly and took it to a safe spot a little higher to eat it. He rotated the nut quickly with his paws and scraped with his sharp teeth to crack it. I could clearly hear the scraping sound of his teeth on the nut.

Then he saw me watching with my camera, so that meant he fled to a more private spot.

Squirrel








Today i had an opportunity to get squirrel caught in my camera.That is quite a challenge, because he is sooo quick.

Anyway for some moments he was having a small pause during his rush for nuts, so I was able to catch a glimpse.
