I had to travel to see this one. Love seeing them though. The ones I have in my back yard are the introduced black and grey squirrels. They seem to do well with the birds that come to the feeders as well. Their just content to scrounge what the birds drop out of them :).

So adorable. I know squirrels are little trouble-makers, but I have one here in PA that is so cute and gets along with the birds. HA!

yes, taken in Caulfield Park, West Vancouver. It's what the the Coopers hawk in my gallery was watching over my shoulder.
