Ours are real hungry too, I think it must be breeding season or something... More snow, lucky you...we have gale force winds today, if the winds come your way with snow you will have a blizzard:(
That squirrel looks plenty fat from your bounty! We are having a "warming trend" a little above freezing, but I think more snow is on the way.
I don't know a great deal about squirrels apart from what they eat, and they look cute :)
Persistent, aren't they?
I'm convinced that squirrels are the smartest, most tenacious creatures around!
Squirrels..they can be pests as you are finding out. I grew a few ears of corn annually until last year. The squirrels would visit during the summer; or at least one regular squirrel but they haven't been around for awhile. I didn't mind the visitor because there was plenty of other seed for the birds but too many birds too is not good for those plants I was to eat :-)
Darn squirrels! :) They want their food and the bird's too! I am convinced there is no way to out smart a squirrel!
