Rainy November Fox Squirrel

The scenery around our yard is particularly stark right now, and things get even bleaker when it rains. This lovely Fox Squirrel was huddled in a tree outside our window on a recent gray afternoon:

How nice it must be to have a fluffy tail to use as an umbrella/blanket in the rain:

Even if we no longer have colorful autumn leaves on the trees, at least our neighborhood Fox Squirrels can still brighten things up!


  1. Are these squirrels redder than ouur grey squirrels?

  2. They are! I'm still shocked to see these orange squirrels wandering around our yard. (We have Gray Squirrels here, too, but I've only seen Fox Squirrels in our yard.)
