Not only do I think this is the most adorable squirrel I’ve ever seen, but he (she?) is probably the tiniest. He must be a baby because he wasn’t even as big as a chipmunk and they are pretty small. His colors are unique.

Bright little bird with fluffy red squirrel

Though clearly a red squirrel — the white ring around his eye is a giveaway as his the white tummy and the tight curl of his tail — but this little guy has a grey head. And a black stripe in his tail. I’ve never seen a squirrel that looks quite like this little fellow. He’s an original!

  1. We don’t get to see many of these cute little fellows where I live, so good to see this one!


    • Red squirrels are not nearly as common as the big grey squirrels — or other big ones in other regions. Mostly, the big ones out-eat the littler ones. But because there is a lot of food in this area between the natural food in the woods, fields and gardens — and all the people who feed birds and squirrels (not every bird feeder is anti-squirrel!) — the little red squirrels have thrived. Given equal opportunity food, they can ALL thrive. It’s when we cut down their woods that the battle to survives gets ugly.
