Squirrel Closeup

Video of a squirrel having a winter snack in Mapleton Park.

I heard this guy before I saw him.

He was in a nearby tree chattering very loudly at another squirrel that was eating the sunflower seeds left by people on top of the post. He chased the other squirrel away and took over ownership of the pile and started eating away while chirping occasionally.

The camera is a bit unsteady since I had it on my tripod and I was holding the tripod close to my chest.

I thought it was such a good closeup that I should post it.
