Island squirrel loose


According to my field guide this red squirrel with the black line down the side is a unique sub-species found on Isle Royale… which is about a 10 hour car ride and then a few hours on a ferry away from me.

  1. Good eye! That squirrel was pretty well camouflaged in that flower pot.

      Thanks. It jumped into the pot when I came outside and resumed running to the bird feeder as soon as I stepped back inside. The squirrels can empty an entire feeder of sunflower seeds in no time. (:
