Follow the Fur

Most Eastern Gray Squirrels don’t have the brown face and back stripe that this one, seen under the feeders at Wachusett Meadow, does. That makes it easily identifiable, and a perfect candidate for following this winter. I’ll be noticing how much time it spends under the feeders, how far it travels along the nearby stone walls and trees, its feeding habits, and its social interactions.

  1. Julie, In case that you need more fur, I got five squirrels that bug the hell of me. they eat all the bird’s seeds. 🙂

    1. LOL! How about a trade? I’ve got DOZENS of bold chipmunks who undermined my brick walkway. I think they could use a little vacation in the Sunny South, H.J.!
