The Squirrels of Highland Park are particularly busy at this time of the year, digging holes everywhere that you don't want them to. I put out some birdseed earlier this morning, and this squirrel spent a good part of the morning swinging on the supposedly squirrel proof bird feeder and trying to make it spill on the ground - a noisy business, since that involves a leap from a swinging wind chime. Since I was going back and forth, back and forth to the garage with boxes and boxes of things destined for Goodwill, and dislodging the squirrel, briefly, every time, it must have had a very active morning.
And then, in the afternoon, the quintessential Highland Park sight scampered across the road: a squirrel with a half-eaten bagel between his teeth.
