A group of squirrels called a dray or a scurry. It is difficult to overestimate the people’s love for this animal-a huge number of children’s poems, riddles, songs are dedicated to the squirrel. Squirrel often becomes an episodic, but very important hero of fairy tales, films and cartoons.
Of course, our desire to feed these animals is good for them. When going to the forest, take with you a roasted black seed or a bag of nuts, such as hazelnuts, walnuts, cedar (only in shell), and the squirrels will surely thank you.
It is important to remember that when you are going to help, the main thing is not to harm: do not give the squirrels bought in the store peeled or salted nuts and seeds, do not treat them with popcorn or sweets, do not treat the almonds – this is for squirrel poison.
In nature, they are not always easy, not every year is yielded, and winters are sometimes so severe that the squirrels do not leave their nests for several days, and quite often they can not find their supplies under a thick layer of snow. Feed the squirrel in the winter and summer you will cheer with their games three or five baby squirrels, living in the nearest birdhouse.
