nibbled

found while walking on the back hill. i have to wonder who's been gnawing away at this acorn. are the black oil sunflower seeds clustered at the nut's base any sort of hint? they came from the feeders in the lower part of the yard - yards away.

Ohhhh, I love puzzles. Would it be a squirrel?

At first glance I thought this was a photo of a mushroom that had been gnawed at by a squirrel. We get that a lot around here.

I'm guessing it's a little mouse. What are your thoughts? It's funny you took that picture... Just yesterday, I snapped a picture of one that made it past the winter and spring nibbles and is now rooted itself into the ground.

FabuLeslie said...

Oh my. Interesting. I guess spring has arrived and more animals are out and about finding food.

Amy said...

Okay, so you love nature as much as I do and wonder.... just a tad off scale, who or what might have left the evidence that you're seeing. I'm interested in seeing what else you may find around your house...

I look forward to reading your posts, they're very refreshing....

chris said...

even though Matt Conlon is taking the blame, like many of you, i do think this is the work of a squirrel or chipmunk. i found the acorn right at the edge of the woods. i just can't figure out why it was left there out in the open, half eaten. do you suppose i interrupted his meal and he had just scampered off somewhere?? thank you all for your visit and your kind comments.

unusual photo; like it

Todd Bryson said...

Its funny to think about what was possible nibbling on it. It could have been anything!

Stirling said...

It's a squirrel, dude. Or as we say here in this part of the world "skwurrl"

Stirling said...

When I said "dude" in the earlier comment, I really meant "dudette." My apologies for unintentionally trying to change your gender. Sorry!
