Store It or Eat It?

This black squirrel had found a great piece of food and seemed to be trying to decide whether to eat it now or store it for later. I wonder how many of their little stored treats ever get found again?

Cute pic. I like black squirrels. We don't have any here. Well, our fox squirrels have some black in them. And yes, I think they remember their stashes...unless, of course, they get run over or caught up by a hawk! :)

Hello, cute capture of your Black Squirrel. I have a squirrel burying a peanut in my yard, some critter will find it. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Have a happy weekend!

Sweet! I didn't even know that black squirrels existed!

They always forget where they store them but can sniff them out later.

I'm glad to see a black squirrel. The Red squirrels have out competed them so their numbers are dwindling. Not sure squirrels always make the best decisions, but then I could say that about myself as well.

They find a lot of them, but enough still grow that it's a good strategy for the trees, too.

Nice pic!

Nice looking squirrel! He should store it; otherwise he's going to wear it!

Great shot and such a beautiful day too.

So cute! I watched a squirrel hide something in my flower bed the other week. They're so much fun to watch.

I found a chestnut tree sapling growing in one of my planters, I suspect squirrels!

Kitty said...

ha. They are funny creatures. Dear thing!

The squirrels sure have been busy in my neighbourhood lately. I think you are correct that they forget where they hide a lot of their treats.
