Do you have some of these busy little creatures? My yard is full of evidence of their tireless labor to ensure provisions for the coming winter months.
The Eastern Gray Squirrel is a scatter-hoarder; it hoards food in numerous small caches for later recovery. Some caches are quite temporary, especially those made near the site of a sudden abundance of food which can be retrieved within hours or days for re-burial in a more secure site. Others are more permanent and are not retrieved until months later. It has been estimated that each squirrel makes several thousand caches each season. The squirrels have very accurate spatial memory for the locations of these caches, and use distant and nearby landmarks to retrieve them. Smell is used once the squirrel is within a few centimeters of the cache. It is one of very few mammalian species that can descend a tree face-first. It performs this feat by means of the backward-pointing claws, one each, on its hindpaws. (from Wikipedia)
The Hickory Tree is a tree prized for it's use in tools and equipment because of it's hard wood. The Hickory Tree is also used for fire wood and the Hickory flavor it adds to smoked meats. It is a great tree in areas with high winds because of the tap roots that go down deep in the earth making the trees very wind resistant. Man and animals enjoy the nut from the Hickory Tree.
