Goofy squirrel and tranquil kingfisher

This morning on the way to work, saw a squirrel burying a nut, then digging up another and eating it. The second time I’ve noticed this- why do they bury one and eat another? Is there a reason or are their little brains just too small? Saw a banded kingfisher sitting still on a branch over the water, a rare sight, that kingfisher being still. Maybe he’s anticipating the wind which will bring cooler weather and, hopefully, rain.

Later- We got the rain in buckets! The kind of rain that booms its way down the streets and makes people pull their cars to the side of the road. I’ll take, it beats no rain at all, maybe it’ll get gentler as the night wears on-
