Crazy Photos: Chickaree Stores Hundreds of Douglas Fir Cones in a House

Jason Mink took these photos at a home in Dorrington, Calaveras County, California. A chickaree (aka Douglas Squirrel) was caching Douglas Fir cones in a home. HUNDREDS of them! October 2017.

 

The chickaree found easy access into this home due to holes drilled for electric lines.
