Almost every night a group of squirrels come to visit. It’s cool watching their routine. They each have their own personalities. Two of them stick together and always play around with each other. They chase each other. They jump from tree to tree and play in a few of the sand piles.
Two different squirrels spend most of their time scavenging for acorns. Though, they both take their own approaches. Actually, only one of the two puts time and effort into finding the acorns. This squirrel is focused and always working. He’ll find enough acorns to bury many of them for a later date. Now the other squirrel, he does things different. You might say he is a bit conniving. If squirrels went by a set of laws and morals, I’m sure he wouldn’t be in compliance.
This squirrel sits back and waits for the first squirrel to find and bury an acorn. Then he runs over to that spot and digs up the acorn. Sometimes, the hard working squirrel catches him. And then the chase begins. He’ll chase the conniving squirrel away. Though, the acorn thief doesn’t stay away. He’ll sit on the outskirts of the area waiting for a chance to swipe another acorn.
Then there is one little guy who keeps to himself. At least as far as the other squirrels are concerned. While the others are playing, he goes off to his own area to look for food. He seems like he is enjoying himself. He just likes to keep to himself. I think he’s a juvenile and exploring life for the first time. Though, he is friendly with humans. When I’m sitting outside, he’ll visit the area near where I’m sitting. Kind of like his way of saying hello. He’ll sit and watch me for a few. Then he’ll check for food before going on his way.
I always liked squirrels. They seem to have an in depth understand of how to enjoy life. They’re happy little critters.
