No, there really is a National Squirrel Appreciation Day in the US, and it is today. So an excuse to show this video taken last weekend in the western High Atlas mountains of Morocco. Look out for the Atlas Day Gecko that pops up in the top right of the screen at 00:52 and the insect one of the squirrels catches seconds later. In the background is the faint song of Serins, Moussier's Redstart and Black Wheatear.
