They are the shyest squirrels we have here...they're smaller than the grey and fox squirrels...and they're only in the mountains. Where in CO are you? I see Estes Park in some of your pics. Love the rack on that elk!!

Yes, Gretel, I agree...beautiful "do"...although he probably doesn't have many "bad ear-days"! ;-)

Thanks...I wish they were a bit less shy and timid...the grey squirrels in the area really dominate.
