Peter Peter pumpkin eater
Large birds and small mammals will eat pumpkin seeds if you offer them in your yard. Pumpkins are 90% water, which means they break down easily and quickly. This makes them a great addition to your compost pile.

Every autumn, squirrels start to bulk up by gorging on excess amounts of nuts, berries,  fruits and vegetables and even insects to help them survive the cold winter months. They also bury food to retrieve when it is scarce. Squirrels don't hibernate, they have to gain weight to help insulate themselves from the cold.
