There's a place out in California (Fort Hunter Leggett) where the squirrels all live on the ground beneath huge oak trees. The annual rainfall is so low that no oak is very near another due to lack of sufficient water. In the air are "squirrel hunting hawks".

The squirrels have developed a system to safely go from oak to oak. They send out a decoy squirrel in the opposite direction, shaking his tail. When he distracts the Hawk, all the others run to the next tree where there is a large supply of acorns. The decoy quickly runs back to the original tree that has enough acorns for the one lonely squirrel until the others return.

Very interesting to watch in action. Evidently the hawk does win sometimes.

If hawks had a language, I wonder what they'd say they watch squirrels like?

Damn! Go on then, T, you go and apply your mighty intelligence to make my Zen sound like the confusion of a Fool. (the emoticon's just so you know that I'm not serious and that you made coffee come out of my nose ).

For the second time in a year, I had a California ground squirrel (the same species mentioned above in the Hunter Liggett story) move into the crawl space under my house. This time instead of getting into the crawl space and chasing it around, I opened the access door, placed my boom box there, turned up the volume and played the following cds: U2's Achtung Baby, Oasis' Whats the Story Morning Glory, Mick Jagger's Wandering Spirit and St. Johnny's Let It Come Down. Even after all that the squirrel was still there. I reapplied the treatment and I think the squirrel left sometime during the second run of Mick Jagger.

hmm... i'm not sure what exactly that says about squirrels' musical taste (if anything). if he had left the *first* time, it would have been clear ; if he had not left at all, it would have been clear as well. but partway through the second time... maybe his work there was just done, you know ?
