Mammal Monday

There isn’t much meat on a maple samara, so this Eastern Grey was rootling and grubbing and chomping. Each picture above is a different samara. Then suddenly…
She found a piece of paper bag. She stuffed one end into her mouth and crushed the rest of it to herself.
And carried it across the street and up a linden tree and into a hole. The overhanging branches prevented me from getting a picture of the entry, but…
She emerged to gave me the eye afterwards.
One year ago, this same hole was the entrance to a Starling nest.
