Thanksgiving squirrel meal
This grey squirrel in our yard did not have access to cranberries for its Thanksgiving dinner so it made do with the next best thing- red pyracantha berries. This Asiastic firethorn bush has been prolific in producing fruit for the twenty years we have been here and the squirrels, mockingbirds, catbirds and especially robins always enjoy the fruit during the winter. This year one squirrel got hungry earlier than usual and had a turkey day snack.
