Check out the video to see this squirrel in action! There is an incredible variety of eastern gray squirrels in southern Ontario from the common gray form to a black form to blond but this is the first time I've seen one like this mostly black but with a rufous colored upper back and intensely contrasting rufous tail. Last photo shows him going for the bird feeder. Reminds me of this other wildly colored squirrel. http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/766...
I spotted this in my own backyard. I get a lot of squirrels and birds in my backyard. Sometimes I also get visited by raccoons, groundhogs, skunks, opossums and most recently, a deer!
