A Black Squirrel, something you dont see to often in this area.

This morning as i was almost out the door for work, i saw this black squirrel on my deck.  Actually, there were at least 10 squirrels robbing the bird feeders and then I saw this little guy.  I rarely see them, in fact I think this is either my first time or 2nd, but thats it.  He was adorable and just as naughty as the others robbing all the feeders.  Hopefully if you click on the picture you can see him better.  I tell ya, if I didnt work full time a good portion of my time would be enjoying Gods creatures.  One of my favorite pastimes is watching the birds and the squirrels.  I've been lucky a few times to also see deer wander thru the yards at night.  Thats rare for here also because of all the traffic.

Wisconsin is having some early Spring temps right now and its so refreshing.  The snow is melting fast and its so nice to only need a sweater again.  People are saying dont get excited because it will not last, but at least at this time of year, we know its coming to an end soon.

3 Thanks for your comments!:

I have never seen a black squirrel before so thank you for sharing. I have been lucky so far this winter that the squirrels have stayed away from the feeders....lol.....now I will probably see one tomorrow stealing seed. Enjoy the warmer temps. Dawnie.

I'd like to see a black squirrel in person. Squirrels are really fun to watch when there's a bird feeder around. They will do anything to get the food.

Glad you are having some warm weather to enjoy. It's warm here, too, and it's been such a pleasant change.

It's very rare to see a black squirrel in your own backyard. I bet they're fun to watch!
