Villains of the Wild Woods

We were at Schoharie Crossing boat launch
this morning, when a walnut thumped to the ground inches from my feet.

Dang, what was up with that? I glanced up, only to realize that I was standing under a maple tree.....walnuts usually grow on walnut trees.

Dagnabbit, this little villain was bombing me.

I went on about my birding business. Then when I returned I heard an odd chucking call from the same tree.

Look who was looking down at me.

At least he warned me this time.

It's a good thing they're so darn cute, those little varmints! And your photos captured something of that cuteness.
