Squirrels stockpile food in the fall

You can expect to see more squirrel activity at your bird feeders this time of year. That's because squirrels stockpile seeds and nuts in hidden caches for the winter. They bury them in the ground--sometimes right in the middle of the lawn--and in openings in tree trunks.

Squirrel-proof feeders and baffles will help keep them away from the bird food. Or you can just give in and feed them. They love peanuts, corn and sunflower seeds.

Happy Birding!
