Red-Head & The Peanuts

The Red-Head went back and forth, back and forth.  Grab a peanut, stash it and repeat.  He ordinarily makes himself welcome to several peanuts when they're available. It seems as if he and the Jays compete to see who can gather the most.


One of his favorite places to stash the treasure is within the deep holes on the electric pole.  He pushed the peanut as far into the hole as he could.  He must have felt pretty confident that his treats were well hidden and would be there when he was ready for them.


However, one must be careful when hiding treasures, for we never know who might be watching and waiting for the perfect time to snatch them...


Ugh! Don't you just hate it when somebody steals your stash?!!!
(In this case, it would be easy to forgive such a sweet little thief)

Red-Headed Woodpecker and Brown-Headed Nuthatch
Perhaps "Nut-snatch" is more appropriate :)
