Guess Who's Coming to Dinner

In March of last year, I went on a birding trip to Reid State Park along the Maine coastline.  While basking  in the warm sunshine after devouring our picnic lunch, watching a raft of mergansers negotiate the waves while feeding, this little fellow (I know, it's not a bird!) decided to join us for a tasty treat. 

Undaunted by our nearby presence, he continued to munch down on his little pine cone,

 
 and munch and munch and munch,


 
Until he had finally stripped it clean.

That last photo is a keeper (as are all the squirrelly ones). What is she reading?

Lovely squirrel pics thanks for sharing.

And that is why you should always bring a big bird guide book (well, and a towel of course). Love the squirrel pics, too.

Thanks for your comments, everyone. I'm not sure that last squirrel would appreciate being included!

Thanx, Kimberly. Finally got around to playing with the layout and learning a thing or two more than the basics.

Eating that cone like corn on the cob! Wow, Holly really is tuckered out - poor thing. But nothing like a nap in the sun!

Adorable! I love squirrels of all kinds, but this one is cuter than average. That's saying a lot for a squirrel.

The Red Squirrel is definitely a dose of cute.

Cracking photos of the Squirrel enjoying his lunch while enjoying the view. As for your little sis...well, that is normally me after a few pints, after a long day's birding.
