Squirrels aren’t so bad after all: Nature News | #childpredator | #onlinepredator | #sextrafficing


I put up my bird feeders last week and started thinking about what to do about the squirrels that usually take more bird feed than the birds. Squirrels are much-maligned at bird feeders; we put out food that the squirrels want and then get mad when they come and eat it.

A friend recently shook my world view by suggesting that this isn’t really fair to the squirrels, that instead of trying to thwart the squirrels at our feeders we enjoy them. That perhaps the real problem with squirrels and our bird feeders is that they make us feel stupid because we can’t outsmart them. Red squirrels and gray squirrels are the two squirrels we usually worry about at our feeders this time of year. 

Chipmunks, the smallest members of the squirrel family, aren’t around in the winter. They semi-hibernate, instead of storing body fat they wake up periodically to snack on their stores of nuts and seeds. Flying squirrels are definitely visiting bird feeders, they don’t hibernate, but since they are nocturnal, we don’t notice them.
