They only eat PART of the strawberry
I just stepped out to eat the first strawberry of the year. As so often happens, I discovered a rich, red, luscius fruit attached to the plant . . . with a big bite taken out of it.
I have a neighborhood full of squirrels, rabbits, mice, chipmunks, raccoons and all sorts of other critters along with insects, so I am well aware that whatever I get to eat will be their left overs. But every year I wonder why I find fruits on the plant with just one bite eaten. Why do they not remove it from the stem? Or at least eat the whole thing?
