      Does this little guy stop by often for food ?
      And have you given he-or-she a name ?

      Black squirrels are regular visitors, along with the ones with normal coloration. There are at least two black squirrels that visit. At least t his year. There's a different brood each year. I can't tell the grey squirrels apart, let alone the black ones.

      This one looks like this year's brood. He's too perfect - no scars, perfect coat, tail is unmarred. I've never thought of naming them, since I can't tell them apart!

      I don't feed them intentionally. They're attracted by the bird feeders. I use squirrel-proof feeders. Whenever possible, I use seed mixes that have minimal waste so as little as possible gets on the ground.
