Grey back, white underside and a brown face. An introduced species here in Washington where they are doing rather well.
Spotted in the backyard building or repairing his or hers drey (nest made of leaves and twigs in the forks of trees). Both male and female share in nest building. The nest is too high up in a dense cedar tree to get a pic. I did enjoy watching the squirrel run along the fence and then up the tree with a mouth full of leaves and twigs about 3 times. Finally he or she stopped for a bit to eat.
