Theme Thursday - Animals ... Squirrel Feast!
You may remember from a previous post we've been feeding the squirrels and testing hypotheses.
Observing daily, taking copious notes, changing circumstances, testing theories we have come to some conclusions on what is the favorite food of our squirrels. Google had us thinking it might be peanuts, but with an easy dish of peanuts in front of them, they'll still go to great lengths to get to the sunflower seeds.
They like their peanuts, too... especially when it's easy.
The bunny, on the other hand, is certainly more dignified. He eats his clover without dramatics, usually sleepy-eyed. He perks up a bit and appreciates the random carrot we toss out.
Our squirrels have been, from the very beginning, our homeschool pets. They've been a part of our "schoolroom."
Watching their mannerisms we've been led to books, Youtube videos and google to find out what it means when they flick their tails or hold their hearts.
...And in doing so, they've won our hearts....
