One of Nature’s Mysteries to Solve


We’re under canopies of color this weekend. Can you tell from the color what species this might be? I tell you, it’s a good skill for a squirrel to have during nut gathering season.

Mystery #80

Miz Flora assures us this is the peak of the fall color for our D.C. suburbs. So give me your guesses, and get out to enjoy the trees in person, or in squirrel!


As one of our readers comments, we squirrels aren’t wasting time scouting under this tree—a Red Maple. No nuts to gather there, just lots of gorgeous leaves.

We’ll leave those to you humans to gather as you are wont to do each fall. Squirrels haven’t figures out why.
