Eastern grey squirrel

Sciurus carolinensis

Description:

I photographed this grey squirrel from the window of my former Washington DC home. I was amazed by the length of its bushy tail, which they most of the time carry curved over their backs and was here fully streched out.

Habitat:

City park/condo garden

Notes:

The Google map locator is amazing: the flag stands on the exact three where the squirrel was sitting!

No species ID suggestions
