Winter Eats

Howdy!Coney

So, those tress I showed you yesterday? We Pine Squirrels visit them daily. The conifer ones, that is. Food here comes from their cones. Up high the snow is deep, so I bet you’re wondering how we get to them.

I’ll let you in on a little secret. The boughs of evergreens hold so much snow, there is a little area underneath that’s bare. Lots of wildlife use it to shelter and find food.
