Squirrel Appreciation Day is January 21

It's Okay to Love Your Squirrels, Too

They may have a reputation for making bird feeding less enjoyable, however, squirrels aren't going away any time soon. Perhaps by looking at them with a different perspective, you can begin to appreciate, if not enjoy, squirrels and their behaviors.

Hickory nuts, pecans, black walnuts and acorns are squirrels’ favorite natural foods. As you may be aware, their favorite feeder foods are corn, peanuts and black oil sunflower seeds; their least favorite feeder food is safflower seed. Adult Squirrels can consume about one and a half pounds of seeds and nuts each week, which is roughly the equivalent of their own body weight.

Feeding your squirrels separately can help keep them happy and off of your bird feeders, which will help keep your birds happy as well. Offer them ear corn, our Wildlife Blend, and Nut Munch Logs.

 

Stop by the store or call us to learn more about how you can enjoy and appreciate the squirrels visiting your yard.
