About the middle of spring I looked out and had to take a double take of what I saw under the bird feeders. Yep, a black squirrel. Oh was that a surprise since the ones we have are red and brownish red. He was pretty fat too. I guess he liked the sunflower seeds.
In Bellevue they have black ones and they are also found in Bowling Green. It makes me wonder how he got so far away from where they are normally found.
I wanted to get better pics of him, but was afraid he would see me and take off. See that little concrete bird bath that is tipped over in the back ground....raccoons! The weeds had taken over too.
He did eventually see me and ran next door. I followed him over to my neighbor's house and found out from them that they had seen this little guy a couple of times. Truth is, I thought he was a skunk at first.
See him up on the fence post? He is a fine specimen.
Run little squirrel, run! And, just like that he was gone. Haven't seen him since he went next door. Wonder what happened to him. I hope no one shoots him come squirrel season.
