Squirrel Talk


Lately, the squirrels have been noisier when they get fed. I don’t know what they’re saying to each other, but it seems as if they can’t stop talking. Didn’t their mother teach them not to talk with their mouth full? Be sure to have the sound on so you can hear their conversation.


It’s a funny spring this year,

Filberts, there are none, I hear.

Even fir cones haven’t grown,

Unlike other years I’ve known.


I’m so thankful for these seeds,

They will sure fulfill our needs,

You eat yours and I’ll eat mine,

Then we’ll get along just fine.

    • They do! They like sunflower seeds (always not salted, of course), and when our trees have them, they eat the filberts (none this year) and the walnuts. Besides that they get their own food of fir cones and I’ve even seen them nibble on a dandelion leaf.

  4. Sie sind jung und haben noch viel vor sich, sie müssen reden, damit Mutter ihnen erklärt, wie man am besten an Futter kommt 😍

  11. Ours do that too! I figure it’s a worried chirping that some other squirrel is going to take their food. You got a great recording of the sound. What a riot. Our little outdoor neighbors.

  14. I haven’t heard the sound of squirrels too often. It was wonderful to become reacquainted. I just might Anneli as our interpretor.

  15. Squirrels are so entertaining as they go about their business. It would be good to know what they are saying. On one of our forest walks, I heard something go whizzing by my ear, then another and another. A squirrel was up in a Tamarack tree chucking down cones and I could swear he was aiming them at me. Happy Tuesday. Allan

    • Right now it’s the time they are doing that around here too, harvesting fir cones. They loosen them and the cones drop onto the steel roof of our woodshed with a loud bang and bounce to the ground. Then the squirrels retrieve them and hide them all around the woodshed for later in the winter.
