This Gray Squirrel, shown above, looks really cute, and I know it gets hungry too; but sometimes I wish it wasn't at my bird feeders eating up the bird food. Its only recently that we have had two showing up quite frequently. Most days it is just the little Red Squirrles; which have been visiting our feeder area for most of the winter. The Gray Squirrel is the largest tree squirrel found in New Brunswick. A size comparision of the Red and Gray Squirrel can be seen in the photo above, which shows both squirrel species feeding at our feeders, doubledecker style. This photo of both the Red and Gray Squirrel is one of my favourites and was taken in June, 2007.
