Sat and watched a white pine and its neighboring small maple, as the sun 
disappeared.  At least three little phantom shapes were working the trees, 
especially the pine.  One or more was/were  red squirrels and I think one was a 
chipmunk but maybe all were red squirrels (young?  to be so close together?).  
In any case, they did a very thorough job of running along branches to the 
tips, including the one where a robin built in May and apparently lost the nest 
contents soon thereafter.  The nest is now on the ground.  

That they find (and eat) bird nest contents is no accident…these little guys 
looked practiced and spatially efficient.
