- graysqrl.jpg. An eastern gray squirrel.
- sqrlbfdr.jpg. The gray squirrel at a bird feeder. Even the Sapsucker Woods bird sanctuary (where this picture was taken) is not immune to gray squirrels!
- blaksqrl.jpg. A black squirrel, another color phase of the eastern gray squirrel.
- foxsqrl.jpg. Fox squirrels have marvelously thick, bushy tails.
- oregsqrl.jpg. A squirrel at a picnic site in Oregon, getting water from a melting ice cube.
- redsqurl.jpg. One of my favorite squirrel species, an American red squirrel.
- caught1.jpg. This red squirrel has also figured out how to get into bird feeders. But someone's coming, so the tiny squirrel quickly exits the feeder...
- caught2.jpg. ... and makes a spectacular leap to safety!
- uptree.jpg. Squirrels are excellent climbers. This fox squirrel is shown bounding up a tree...
- downtree.jpg. and here's a gray squirrel climbing down a tree, head first! Note how the squirrel's feet are turned backwards in order to hold on to the tree.
- grndsqrl.jpg. Another member of the squirrel family is the thirteen-lined ground squirrel. These small squirrels have a distinctive pattern of lines and spots on their backs.
- chipmunk.jpg. Chipmunks are also members of the squirrel family. This is an eastern chipmunk.
- stuffed.jpg. Chipmunks stuff their food into their cheek pouches, giving them a rather bizarre appearance.
