Is that squirrel going to come out of that hole?
All right. I'm hooked. It runs down the tree and onto deck and selects five or six leaves and crams them into mouth:
And then it runs back up the tree, taking the leaves into the hole/nest:
A couple minutes later, it repeats the process: down the tree, gather the leaves, return to hole. After three or four of these treks, it emerges from hole and stretches:
First right side up, then upside down:
Then time for a pause and some sun:
And then some rest, perhaps a nap:
And then the squirrel starts all over again. . .
Its schedule is rather like my own: run around, gather things together, stretch, snack, nap, and repeat . . .
