Ow. Some fiend dropped an acorn on my head. I gazed among the leafy branches of a nearby oak. Eventually I spied the culprit.

An Eastern Gray Varmint, er, Squirrel, an imported animal of the oaks of the east. Our native squirrel is the daintier, cuter Douglas' Squirrel. A tale of the two squirrels here.

Oh, the look in that beady eye... he was aiming for your noggin! Our poor dog used to get beaned in the yard from up above in the filbert tree. Those rascals.
