Animals adapt to environments. If they don’t, they aren’t. Sometimes, the environment is favorable. This Eastern Grey Squirrel spends its time under bird feeders at Hemlock Bluffs Wildflower Garden in Cary, NC. Birds push seed down, providing the squirrels and ground doves lots of food. There is no hunting, dogs are leashed, hemlocks provide cover and human activity keeps hawks away. It is squirrel “Xanadu” or at least, “High Cotton”.
