This is an important time of year for squirrels! Summer is over, the weather is getting cooler, it's the time for finding, and hiding, nuts to get through the long cold winter ahead.
And it's also time for Squirrel Awareness Month.
This is the perfect time to get to know the squirrels in your yard and in your neighborhood. How best to do this? You can take a walk in the park and watch the squirrels and other animals there.
You can put food out in your own yard for the squirrels, and watch as they come to eat. WalMart and many other stores sell squirrel food mixes and dried corn to nourish your bushy-tailed friends. You can also simply put out some black oil sunflower seeds. If you have bird feeders in your yard, of course, you are well aware that squirrels are inventive at gaining access to those.
Of course, another way to learn more about squirrels is by reading The News For Squirrels. But of course that goes without saying.
