My first attempt at collecting some squirrel pics in 2023 turned up a squirrel who seemed to be all over the place, and was easy to identify in photos due to one distinguishing feature. Check out that tuft of white above his ears! I swear I’m half blind, because I never notice things like this (or the ear notches on the park squirrels) in real time… but it’s easy to spot while going through the photographic results.
It’s funny, because this subject came up last week when I showed off the pics of the white squirrel from Virginia! Donna even mentioned she has a squirrel nearby with distinctive white patches of fur.
I only kept eighteen of the photos, but Mr. White Tufts was in over half of them… and in various locations as well. Not surprising since the handful of squirrels milling about were, in typical sciurine fashion, never in one place for very long….
I’ll have to look out for more of this guy! We don’t have those cute ear tufted squirrels that they do in the Eastern Hemisphere, but my newest Saturday Squirrel on the block seems to be as close as I can get to one!
Have a great weekend everyone!
