he does look fat and sassy!
Very cool, he is deffinatly enjoying himself.:-)
Cute!...Something has been eating up all the pumpkins on the porches of my sister's neighborhood...altho I haven't seen one I am suspecting squirrels too:)
Talk about a feast!
"What ever will I do, there is far more than my cheeks can hold....."
I didn't realize squirrels liked pumpkins. I thought they only liked seeds and nuts.
Looks like the squirrel has hit gold!
Cool shots! That is one chubby squirrel. I think he'll winter well!
Fun, they need food to.Maria berg
This is just too cute. He's eatting at the Halloween buffet. :)
Char: sassy - that's a good description for a squirrel!Ed: he was still at it after I'd turned around to walk back.Oliag: I was dodging squirrels all morning, so it is quite likely.Lori: I was surprised there was only one at this display!Sistertex: sometimes, I think he looked a little overexcited at his cache.
Nora: there were probably still a lot of pumpkin seeds inside these ones. and they are very tasty.crazysheeplady: thanks, that's exactly what I was aiming for.Colleen: I imagine that's what he thought.Shirley: and we want the squirrels to winter well, don't we?!Maria: if only they weren't such messy eaters.dibear: I bet they really look forward to this time of year - dessert treats.
I bet it didn't take the squirrel very long to discover this feast. Thre may be a few more ther tomorrow!
Now there's a fat and happy squirrel.
Stine: there were certainly many of the beggars running around the streets.SAW: I know - he had that whole stash all to himself (while I was watching anyway!)
The squirrels, are they after the seeds or the flesh?They are doing a great job recycling what would otherwise be a rotting pile of pumpkins.Re: The row of houses, luckily, many of the houses in New Zealand are detached houses, and in the old days, a law of quarter acre. We are renting one of these detached house. We may have to buy one of these terraced houses though.In Singapore, we once stayed in a block of 4 stories and there were 14 units. Not nice for noise.What kind of you are you staying? When I was in Windsor, the first apartments I stayed was up stairs a block of shops.
I am pleased to see that Halloween is good for something!
lol! This is great. What a fun twist to the challenge. Love this!~Lisa
I often wondered what happened to all the insides and outsides of those carved pumpkins!
Ann: I have seen squirrels eating the flesh, but I would have thought the seeds were their main object of desire. Meggie: and see how the squirrels get the healthy stuff and the kids get the junk food?Lisa: thanks, I'm not much into Hallowe'en myself.Gilly: then there are those that get tossed to the middle of the road to be squashed by cars.
I've been looking for some pumpkins by the curb to bring home for my hens. They love 'em!Funny, I didn't know squirrels could read the calendar! Or anything, for that matter! lol
Now THAT sort of thing makes my Halloween!
Susan: hens love pumpkins? would that make a difference to their eggs, I wonder?Lena: it was fun actually, wandering around looking for just the right squirrel and pumpkin combination.
I did not know that squirrels liked to eat squash. Great pictures
Carly: the things one learns about nature living in a city, eh?!
