First thing FIRST - glad to hear things are now under control in regard to the fires out west.

You surprise me when you say no black squirels - I'm amazed.
Also interesting is squirels with spots on the hind quarters and ones with white tails.

You think that's a male hah! How could you tell - lol.

This one was not only not afraid, but extremely hostile about me being there.

Tom - is that one of the red squirrels? It's coloring is significantly different than the ones around here.

It is a Red Pine Squirrel, that only eats the seeds from Pine Cones and is about twice the size of a Chipmunk.

The other red squirrels we have are Fox Squirrels and they are about half again the size of Grey Squirrels, which are the dominant squirrel here in Northern Wisconsin, along with their black color variation.

I see a lot of squirrels in my neighborhood, but when I'm outside I'm usually walking my jack russell and she hates squirrels and chases them away as soon as she sees them.

Those tiny squirrels are cute - I can't tell them apart from chipmunks. I once read what the difference is, but I can never remember.
