Squirrel Scurry — 6 Comments

  1. Yes, I do see an all white squirrel here in my yard nearly every day. There has been at least one around here during all of the time we have lived here along the river, since 1989. Thanks for sharing the articles.

  2. I find your information interesting. My great-grandfather, Millard D. Olds, brought black squirrels to the northern part of the lower pennisula in Michigan back in the early 1900s. It interesting to read about others trying to import the squirrels. The black squirrel population in Michigan is doing very well.

  3. For what it’s worth, I have, in fact, seen black squirrels in Mass. Very rarely, but I did see them in Concord. At the time, I thought it might have been a grey squirrel that got caught in a chimney…

  4. Not related to squirrel color varieties, but… one time my dad caught a squirrel ripping up our patio couch (in the squirrel’s defense, it was already pretty ratty) and carrying the stuffing up the tree like a bushy white beard. From that event the squirrel was dubbed “Santa Claus.”
