Squirrel Appreciation Day

Since today is Squirrel Appreciation Day, here is a video I took recently of Olivia and me watching our resident squirrels out the window, recovering their nut stash from their hidey-holes. They're TOO CUTE!

Video Description: A grey squirrel does some important squirrel business, digging underneath fallen leaves to find the nuts it buried below earlier in the year. It pulls up an acorn and holds it in its wee hands, munching. Then it scurries around, picking through the leaves in search of more buried treasure. It hops up on a rock, standing on its hind legs, watching a car pass, then goes back to nut-hunting. I pan to the left, and there is another grey squirrel also engaging in important squirrel business. Olivia the White Farm Cat, who is sitting beside me, watches the squirrel intently through the window. Second Squirrel hops around, investigates a plant, and then runs up a tree. First Squirrel hops back up on the rock, stands up, looks around, and then scurries away.
