Peanut Snatcher

Posted by
Elaine Hancock (Olney, United States) on 22 December 2014 in Animal & Insect.

I put peanuts out for the squirrels and the blue jays have taken them all in just a few minutes!

Aw but he's a handsome little fellow, so he can be forgiven. Do you have red squirrels?

@Ainsley: We only have gray squirrels, black squirrels and little chipmunks. I have never seen a red squirrel!
