    on our bird feeder last week.  We've never seen one like it before!

    Photobucket

    Please excuse the poor quality of the pic, but I was shooting quickly with my phone, through the window to catch a shot before he took off and I missed him altogether!

    As it turned out, he was quite a character and scolded me harshly for interrupting his feeding! LOL!  He "vogued" all over that feeder too - being certain that I could admire his coloring from many different angles.  

    Quite a funny little guy!

      what a picture! What a squirrel! Never saw anything like that before.

        I have not seen him at all this week, but this morning - there he is again! (I am so tickled!)

        Ben knows a fellow who works for the City's tree crew. His team often discovers baby squirrels when they have to take down trees, so this man fosters them until the youngsters are old enough to be on their own.  He said that he has seen ONE with these markings (in all the years he has been doing this). So apparently it's not completely unheard of.  

        I am delighted just the same. LOL!  I'm a big fan of grey tuxedo kitties - so now I get to have a special grey tuxedo squirrel friend!

        Have a great weekend, Melanie!
