Here in Lincoln the native red squirrels are almost as plentiful as Juncos.  And their red makes them perfect fans of THE local sport, Nebraska Husker football which requires an inordinate amount of garish red paraphenalia.  While the football team is the Cornhuskers, my interest was focused on the nut huskers.  Herewith my red rodent round-up:

The squirrels were

digging around in the leaves to recover hidden walnuts and then going up into the tree for safe dining.  thus the meaning of the verb, “to squirrel.”
