Squirrels Grow Restless
I went for my Sunday walk and found two more black squirrels rummaging for food. They are now competing with the fox squirrels for resources. I’m sure there will be many battles to come.
The black squirrels are actually fox squirrels and eastern grey squirrels with a melanistic genetic condition. These squirrels are located in the American Midwest and are becoming more common as time goes on. I’m glad to see there is some new variety in my area of South Dakota.
After the brown verses black squirrel battle this little guy cruises forward looking for new food sources. The brown squirrel retreats to his buddies a few trees over. Eventually the black squirrel retires to its nest and does not reappear. Next time, same squirrel channel I guess.
