Chalk it up in the category of “things you had no idea existed”… but it does! Saturday, January 21 is National Squirrel Appreciation Day! (Seriously, it’s true! Check out this post over at the National Wildlife Federation.)
So, for just one day, stop focusing on the paths of destruction squirrels leave in their wake and give up on trying to squirrel-proof your feeders. Instead, throw them some peanuts or dried corn… heck, you can even build a simple squirrel feeder if you’re feeling big-hearted.
When it’s all over, you can go back to squirrel-busting with a vengeance. In the meantime, though, take a moment or two to admire these creatures. Then drop by the comments and share your favorite squirrel story!
