The squirrel would jump up, grab one of these branches, and hang upside down, bouncing in the air. Sometimes he would nibble on a bud. Then he would jump to another branch, or fall to the ground and start all over. His antics made me think of a cat that had been hitting the catnip a little too much! Either bouncing from branch to branch or ground to branch and back again, he was so animated that I couldn't take my eyes off him.
After some time he ran off to another tree and disappeared into the branches above.
