One Critter Is Eating Well

 

The storm appears to have subsided for now. It’s still snowing, but not as heavily as it was. Cars are moving and driveways are getting plowed out.

This clever little red squirrel knows where to find food. After fighting off a bossy blue jay and some chattering chickadees, he moved into the bird feeder and spent most of his morning there.

Digging himself a tunnel through the snow, he has all the food he could want and a place to get out of the wind.

“If we had a keen vision of all that is ordinary in human life, it would be like hearing the grass grow or the squirrel’s heart beat, and we should die of that roar which is the other side of silence.” ~ George Eliot

“Living is no laughing matter: you must live with great seriousness like a squirrel for example – I mean without looking for something beyond and above living, I mean living must be your whole occupation.” ~ Nazim Hikmet
