Kharla's Squirrel Buffet Diner

Today, I wanted to share a photo of the new diner I opened up, for all our local squirrels. Each day I throw a generous handful of unsalted peanuts out in our yard, for a couple squirrels that tend to hang around here. Once in a while, a red squirrel comes by and chases all the other ones away. There was only one black squirrel and a gray one, that showed up this morning to enjoy this treat. They know that I can't resist a cute face!

It's the least I can do, to help God's wildlife survive another bitter, cold winter

I could never figure this out, the red squirrels are so aggressive and very mean to the other ones!:( @JolietJake

Very nice of you to feed them. Ours have been gathering tree nuts and acorns since summertime.

Thanks, it was so funny, during the warmer months. The squirrels would bring corn kernels, from our neighbors yard. They would bury it in our front yard and then go get another kernel to bury. In the afternoon, a flock of turkeys would come into our yard and eat that corn! LOL

@DianneN They would faithfully bury those darn kernels, every day! It's no wonder those turkeys are so huge

Wildlife is really hard to capture on "film" @kobesbuddy I usually end up with a photo of a patch of dirt.

Maybe if you throw the peanuts in more than one spot other squirrels would be able to get some too.

The squirrels really don't mind sharing, as long as the red squirrel doesn't come around.

We have fewer squirrels this year, for some reason. Usually, we had many of them around.

I imagine they will stop by everyday until you stop feeding them. As long as the nuts are on you why not? Who doesn't like free

That is really nice of you to do that. We don't have any squirrels but we do put bird food out all winter for the birds that stay.
