A Squirrel lives in my yard. He comes over to me quite often and I feed him assorted nuts I buy for him at EL SUPER.
He comes quite close to me. Sometimes he’ll take the nuts from my hand. Sometimes I just lay the nuts out and he takes them one by one. Some he eats, the rest he buries in the yard. I brings me much joy and inner peace to sit outside and commune with this denizen of urban wildlife. I’ve named him Frank.
He prefers the Peanuts, Almonds and Walnuts. He is not keen on the Brazil Nuts or Hazelnuts. If I’m inside my house, he’ll knock on the screen door to let me know he’s there.
