My friend Murray Head loves squirrel watching as much my husband and I do. Better yet, he photographs these cute critters in the wilds of Central Park and in our backyard at the Shore. We feed the squirrels lots of peanuts and have ears of dried corn on a wheel. These backyard acrobats love to hang onto the spokes of the wheel and nibble the corn. Both Murray and my friend Wendy spent Thanksgiving with us and it was all about the squirrels because Wendy makes daily trips to Central Park where she feeds her squirrels. As soon as she starts up the path to her bench, the squirrels come running out to grab the almonds, hazelnuts and peanuts she brings them. Here we are at Costco loading up on food for our furry and feathered friends.
