It’s not uncommon for there to be a lot of people in front of the Madison Building. It’s also common to occasionally see a small animal or two. But rarely do I see one this relaxed while having an afternoon snack. This squirrel enjoyed a peanut just beyond the Knowledge Will inscription outside the nation’s memorial to President James Madison and the Law Library of Congress.
The squirrels’ name is Rocka. She has been with us at the Library for around 4+ years. She does indeed love her peanuts and a group of us indulge her daily in her “panhandling” efforts.
