The odd thing about living in the country is that squirrels are rarely the nuisance they can be to urban folk. I think country squirrels are wilder than city ones, but it also turns out that we are experiencing two different squirrel species all together.
Acorns, walnuts, chestnuts and hickories certainly qualify as a worthwhile winter stash for a squirrel, but they also sustain themselves on other fruiting bodies like plums, paw paws, serviceberries, holly berries, mulberries, crabapples, elderberries and the fruit from dogwoods and black gums.
