Peach Critters

We have two peach trees in our backyard that every couple of years yield a bumper crop. Fresh, tree-picked peaches are the best (and juiciest) thing around ... but critters like 'em also. I have a separate page that shows birds and foxes and wasps going after 'em ... and even squirrels enjoy 'em as seen below ... although this guy wasn't too smart as it was several weeks before they ripened - D'OH!

Not-so-smart squirrel grabs an unripened peach - birds and wasps are much smarter

In 2008, the peach squirrels were much more aggressive!
