Missed my column last week, but things are becoming crazy here. Acorns starting to fall, means squirrels have got to get busy. But we do take time to snack, and not just on acorns. What do you think this fall berry treat might be?
Will check back later for your guesses!
Bet you recognize the leaves from many trees in the east – maples. This shrub isn’t in the same family, it just has a similar looking leaf. It’s a Maple Leaf Viburnum, Viburnum acerifolium. Because the shrub’s branches are thin, birds feed on the fall berries more than we d. But a squirrel will try anything!
