From “Crumbs From the Mealsite” by Margaret Fine: -  The creatures of the forest are busy on the hill above Michigan Ave. The turkeys, sometimes six or eight at a time, march along the old railroad tracks and in the bushes. The squirrels, Sammie and Lolita, have been joined by others, sometimes four or five (without names) come to argue over who will get the peanuts being fed to them.
