The first real sign that the weather is changing. Are the nuts gathering the squirrels or is it the other way around? I just happened to look out the door and saw this little guy trying to get at the bird feeders. When I went outside, he (or she) looked up and stood there for a moment before scurrying up the tree the first time then through our fence the second time. Mom has one that steals the bell shaped bird seed by actually undoing the wire she uses to tie it into the tree! She has lost 3 so far and found one by the road, the wire still attached but neatly unwound where it had been tied to the tree branch!
