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. These cones were placed there by the chickaree. Busy chickaree caches hundreds of cones in this home in Dorrington. Busy chickaree caches hundreds of cones in this home in Dorrington.
