It's winter in Canada. Below freezing temperatures + snow = hungry critters.
This little guy is just one of the 15 or more squirrels that come to the feeders in our backyard. He's the only grey one, all the others are black squirrels. Black squirrels are faster, fitter, fiercely territorial and more aggressive, beating greys to food and mates.
I have a soft spot for Stoney, he's the under
dog squirrel. I am always thrilled when I catch a glimpse of him. I just love the little tufts of reddish orange fur on his ears.
