Tonight was the first time I tried feeding the squirrels down at the park. Lately a few of the squirrels have been coming up to my bike looking for free handouts. So I knew they were being fed. I bought a small bag of peanuts at Yoder's Produce Market and decided to give it a try. Finally with a bit of coaxing and giving them space three of them came to pick up peanuts. After their first round of grabbing peanuts, they dashed off to a comfortable distance before breaking up the peanuts to get to the nuts. I am hoping the time comes when they will eat them out of my hand.
