There Once Was a Squirrel Who Lived in an Oak
When we were young, we all grew up singing the old song “There once was a squirrel who lived in an Oak.” We were humming the tune, and at times, we were singing it out loud. When we got older, we learned that we didn’t need to sing as loudly as we did when we were young. But, the wise old owl still lived in an Oak tree. He learned from the wise squirrel and spoke less.

Mary Ann and Wanda lived in an oak
The University of Nebraska’s landscaping service team recently discovered a flying squirrel nest in a dying oak tree. They were cutting down a tree for a landscaping project when they noticed the squirrels. The crew recorded their behavior as the squirrels jumped from one tree to another before slipping out of view. The landscaping crew and conservation biology professor at the University of Nebraska were surprised by their discovery. Since flying squirrels are nocturnal, the discovery was particularly interesting.
The acorn is made up of lipids, which are the tasty fat, and tannins, which are bitter chemical substances. The lipids are on the top, while the acorn’s bottom contains the embryo. Scientists discovered that the squirrels roll and shake the acorns to ensure they’re properly ripe before consuming them. They also shake the acorns to determine the expiration date, which they do by observing slow-motion video.
Old Mr. Brown
The familiar tune of the old tawny owl, Old Mr. Brown, was once sung to a young child by his father, Mr. Brown. The song was sung in the late 19th century, and is still popular today. It tells of a little red squirrel named Nutkin, his little brother Twinkleberry, and their many cousins. Nutkin lived in a wood on the edge of the lake. On this island, an oak tree stands hollow, and Old Brown is a resident of the oak-tree. When the nut-shelled squirrels ripened in the autumn, Nutkin and Twinkleberry jumped out and danced.
As a child, Holly Thomas was often carried by her mother. She didn’t want him to grow up too fast or walk much, because she was afraid he’d be killed by people who would try to kill him. It wasn’t unusual for people to kill the babies that were too big for the woman to carry. It’s also not uncommon for a child to be killed when he grows too fat to walk or too large to hold.
PLUM PUDDING for Old Brown
There once was a squirrel who lived in a hollow oak near the shore of Lake Ontario. The story goes that a little red squirrel named Nutkin lived on an island. He had a brother named Twinkleberry and many cousins. Nutkin and his brother lived in a wood at the edge of the lake. The island is filled with oaks and is the home of a famous owl named Old Brown. Nutkin and Twinkleberry would come out of the woods whenever the nuts were ripe and the leaves were turning golden. Nutkin and his brother would go to the edge of the lake to see the leaves change colors in the autumn.
One day, Nutkin brought Old Brown some wild honey. He would wrap it in a dock-leaf and secure it with a pine-needle pin. But Nutkin had no ring to give Old Brown. Instead, he gathered robin’s pincushions from a briar bush. He would stick them with pine-needle pins and present them to Old Brown.
Old Mr. B!
There once was a squirrel who lived in a large oak tree in Maine. It was called Nutkin, and it was an impertinent little fellow who always got into trouble with his old master, Old Brown. Nutkin lived on a wooded island in the middle of a lake, where he had many cousins and a brother named Twinkleberry. The island was covered with a forest of nut bushes and trees.
In order to survive, squirrels eat acorns and other tree-based products, such as nuts and seeds. They often store these acorns for the winter, and not all acorns are the same. It’s important to remember that different squirrels prefer different acorns, so don’t confuse them. You may be surprised to learn that some squirrels eat only certain kinds of acorns, while others prefer those that grow at the bottom of the acorn.
