Take a look at what came for a snack at my bird feeder today. We have alot of these in our town just they are mostly on the other side of the river.... But over the last 4 years they have found a way to this side...maybe they are crossing the river in the winter..... anyway I just love to see these black squirrels in my yard... The gray ones love to chase them. Poor little guy runs like a bat-outta-hell when he sees the gray squirrel close by. I got him this close with sunflower seeds.. I wonder if he will like peanuts? He reminds me of my black Chinchilla.. I just want to reach out and grab him!!! He looks so soft.. and look at that tail!.. I suppose he wouldn't like it very much....so I'll just peek at him thru my living room window.... and give my chinchilla an extra squeeze tonight.
