With winter around the corner many animals are bulking up and stashing supplies to survive the cooler season. Full of calories and prolific, nuts are a prime autumn food source for many creatures. Squirrels, birds and deer gorge themselves on tasty acorns, walnuts and pecans in this gallery of hungry creatures. To prepare for leaner months both acorn woodpeckers and squirrels store their nutritious treats in larders, granaries, middens or caches. The birds average 325 nuts each in their storehouses while grey squirrels have been recorded hording over 3,000 a season!
