There are quite a few bird’s nests in our area.

 “Grey squirrels are mainly herbivorous, eating acorns, hazel nuts, berries, fungi, buds and shoots, and even bark. However, on rare occasions when plant food is very scarce they will eat insects, smaller rodents, bird eggs and nestlings.” – Wild life in the city.

Allford: How watching hares, squirrels and other pretty pests offers a psychological pick-me-up

“The ones you see around town, the Eastern Grey Squirrel (they also come in black or brown), are from Toronto. The Toronto Zoo gifted a few to the Calgary Zoo but they escaped and soon became the gift that keeps on giving. And giving. I haven’t forgiven the big bullies for running all the Red Squirrels out of town.” – Jennifer Allford
