Squirrel Awareness Month

It is October now, and that means it's Squirrel Awareness Month. Most of the nut harvesting by squirrels in the northern hemisphere occurs in October. Here in Texas, where it is very hot, October is the month that ends summer and begins fall. I haven't seen much squirrel activity in the past few months, but hopefully things will change this month. I will be travelling around the area to places where squirrels abound, to watch them. To celebrate October as Squirrel Awareness Month, I put up a squirrel feeder in my backyard and filled it with nuts, now that my redbud tree finally grew big enough. Updates will be posted.

you should travel to North Manchester Indiana. We have all kinds of squirrels! I wouldn't say they are tame, but they definitely aren't scared of people. You can get about 2 feet from them before they move. And they are everywhere!

I love squirrels, too! I have an adorable white squirrel that spends a lot of time in the house we have provided him. Want to see more of Edgar? http://www.facebook.com/twowomenandahoe!
