Nuts Over Squirrels

The squirrels at Union Square are definitely well-fed. Notice the empty walnut, hazelnut and peanut shells scattered all over the ground? Someone has been feeding them the good stuff.

So what kind of nuts do you like?

I just like salted peanuts in the shell. I think you are playing tricks with us. Thats a large squirrel costume with somebody inside it and the surroundings are all fake.

Seasoned Peanuts that are normally found in cans.

I don't really like any nuts as I'm allergic to nuts and almonds. I've had one really bad reaction where there was a trip to A&E involved! Whoops!

Oooh, scary fat overgorwn monster squirrels!!

I like hazelnuts, almonds, walnuts and pinenuts.

Peter said...

I'm nuts of all kind of nuts! Maybe a preference for the Grenoble walnuts! Must be careful though not to "overconsume"; the pic of your squirrel may serve as a warning!

There you go again, Ming....on the food theme ;-) Squirrel Cafe...and who is there? It's Ming.

BTW....put White Balance into Google and you will find 6 or 7 very digestable little articles that will help you along.

This little nut likes: hazelnuts, pecans, walnuts, and almonds! Actually, the only nuts I don't care for are the big Brazialian nuts...

Lori said...

Awww, he's so cute!! I'm surprised he let you get so close to him. My favorite nuts are cashews and almonds, and I usually have some for a snack every day. I'm glad this squirrel is well-fed too!

That squirrel is so cute. He is well fed indeed judging from his size. :)

Sonia said...

What a cute! What a huge tail!

PS: About the wild ducks, they were near my house, not in my backyard.

Sonia said...

Me again, Ming.
About your comment on Only Photos, no, all that land isn't my garden! I would love it was! Lol! My yard have 20.000 sq meter = 4.942 acre.
You can see on the photo a street, and my garden is above this street.

Meet Mr. Fatty, becoming overweight like most Americans. Does he eat supersize nuts?

Nuts, I love'em all!

Come on, admit it: it was you. You gave him your lunch!

My sister used to live just off of Gramercy park and I always enjoyed hand feeding peanuts to the squirrels through the wrought iron gate.

They aren't that trusting on the Island.

it does not miss food it would be necessary that it is put at the sport
