those crafty squirrels

Following the post about my leaf drawing of squirrels and acorns earlier today, Mike found an interesting article about red squirrels decorating their nests! :D

Red squirrels decorate their pile of food supply (spruce cones, in this case) with paper…

 

… leaves and grass…

 

… and moss.

 

An overview of a large pile of cones decorated with paper and other found objects…

 

A bounty of butternut and cones! :D

 

And our friend, the red squirrel, stopping for lunch.

 

Cheers!
