A steady clatter of acorns from a squirrel foraging in the crown of an oak. Could it be dropping them on purpose for later retrieval?

  1. I read somewhere that squirrels bury lots of food but don’t remember where they put it. They start looking for food later when they are hungry and because they bury so much of it, they eventually find something.


  2. Interesting…that’s the complete opposite of what I’ve read in another source. I might have to check that squirrel book out.


    1. I recommend it highly. It’s very readable, and nobody knows more about North American tree squirrels than those guys.
