A few months ago, I learned about the white squirrels in Olney, Illinois. This Southern Illinois city has one of the notable populations of white or albino squirrels. They are albinos because they have the red tint in their eyes. I was able to see three different white squirrels at Onley City Park during my visit on Saturday July 27th and Sunday July 28th, 2019. I am fairly certain that they are three different squirrels since they were spotted in three different areas of the park. We were staying at the new hotel across the street, making this the spot of choice when I come back. So if you are thinking about Squirrel Tourism - make sure Olney, Illinois is on your list.

A few months ago, I learned about the white squirrels in Olney, Illinois. This Southern Illinois city has one of the notable populations of white or albino squirrels. They are albinos because they have the red tint in their eyes. It was recommended that I get to Miller's Grove Park (north of the city) to see more white squirrels. I did see one while I was there on the morning of Sunday July 28th, 2019. So if you are thinking about Squirrel Tourism - make sure Olney, Illinois is on your list.

A few months ago, I learned about the white squirrels in Olney, Illinois. This Southern Illinois city has one of the notable populations of white or albino squirrels. They are albinos because they have the red tint in their eyes. I had been modestly successful seeing three white squirrels around City Park and one at Miller's Grove, but I was hoping to see more. So when you are looking for things - well, you go to the library. Behind the Olney Public Library (400 W Main St, Olney, IL 62450), there is a small park or green space. I drove by a few times, but then on the third time, I saw a white squirrel running to a tree. I got a few pictures when I realized that there were two of them. Over the course of my time there - and when I came back, I noticed that they were both building a drey (or leaf nest) in the trees right behind the library. So if you are in Olney, head to the library for everything you need...and white squirrels. They even have a cool logo featuring this town's most famous resident. So if you are thinking about Squirrel Tourism - make sure Olney, Illinois is on your list. Taken in Olney, Illinois on July 28th, 2019.

This squirrel showed up at our feeding stations yesterday. The last albino that we had was about 2 years ago. We are pretty excited to see this little guy (or girl)

 

Our albino squirrel has fattened up nicely for the winter. I'm really hoping to see a few more of these running around next spring

Not the best shot, but one I have been trying to get for the past week, so it certainly made my day.

This squirrel was standing at the end of my driveway as I pulled into it this afternoon. This is the first albino squirrel that I have ever seen in my yard. I got out of the car very quietly and ran into the house to grab the camera.

Not an albino squirrel. This is a rare color variation of the Eastern Gray Squirrel. Although albino squirrels exist, this squirrel is considered “white” and is not albino.Some people think it is good luck to see a white squirrel, so be on the look out for one...

 

Ce n'est pas un albinos. C'est un écureuil dont la couleur est rare. Les albinos existent mais cet écureuil est considéré comme étant blanc, mais non pas albinos.Il y a des personnes qui croient que la chance les favorise si elles voient un écureuil blanc, alors, soyez vigilants...

The albino squirrel stopped in at the corn feeder before bedding down for the evening

Good News! We now have a 2nd albino squirrel in our yard. I captured this one coming out of a squirrel feeder that my Uncle Ray made us for Christmas.

 

Now the big challenge is going to be able to capture both of them in the same photo. I missed a shot just a few minutes ago. I was focusing on this tree but a goldfinch landed next to me. As I looked over to look at the finch, both of the albinos ran down the tree. It was too late as I swung the camera back over to the tree

 

Photographed in Lakeville Minnesota

 

Icicle was rescued by the London Wildcare Trust and now lives in Walpole Park.

 

Looks good on a black background too.

Spotted this albino squirrel eating under our bird feeder!!

This albino squirrel has been coming to my London garden since 2012.

The albino squirrel is taking a nap in the tree, obviously trying to escape the heat and humidity. It was 91 degrees and getting even more humid as I shot the photo

I awoke this morning about a half hour earlier than normal because I had a meeting I had to attend at work. Since I had a bit of extra time before I left for work I decided to follow the albino squirrel around the yard

  

This squirrel will sit on this broken branch for hours watching his surroundings

The Albino squirrel takes full advantage of the peanut feeders

We have another albino, we saw two of them this afternoon in the front yard. We had only been seeing one for the last few months and were pretty sure our 2nd from last year didnt survive.

 

The new squirrel appears to be quite a bit smaller and younger

The albino squirrel has been spending a lot more time at our feeders lately. His winter coat has been coming in and he also appears to be putting on a bit of weight to help him get through the Minnesota winter

My first time ever seeing an albino squirrel. It was hard to get close so I sat on the ground and moved in slowly. I still didn't get close enough but it was fun to watch for the 20 min it stuck around. this little one chased the grey squirrels up and down the trees.

Young albino fox squirrel. This is our second white squirrel, the first three years ago. Appears to me a male and my wife named him Pearl. His eyes appear light blue due to the way light passes through the iris. He has one blonde and several normal color siblings. We're happy & excited to have this rare squirrel at our place.

a resident albino squirrel I have been trying to capture for a year...

Albino squirrel digging UP a nut. The way winter has arrived early in our parts methinks he should be burying it!

Albino squirrel in late autumn.

A bit of a mixture today, I saw this Albino Squirrel last week but it ran away before i got close enough, today i was a bit lucker, not a brill shot as he was running up the tree with his chestnut, bless him

dude he has huge nads!

 

This photo made top interestingness for April 6, 2006!

 

Thanks everyone!

 

I have much better work! CHECK OUT MY PORTFOLIO HERE!

 

*UPDATE* Aug 29, 2006:

I just read in the student newspaper that this squirrel has been killed by a hawk. Rest In Peace, little guy.

 

-Update, January 2009-

 

Yes, there is another albino squirrel on the campus of UNT. There are two actually, I have not yet photographed them though. The albuno gene is alive and well in Denton, though some suspect tampering.

Statistics say that about 1 in 100,000 squirrels are born with albinism. Chatham cemetery has a whole family of them. We decided to look for them during a beautiful sunny afternoon today and were rewarded with seeing at least 2, possibly 3 or even 4. This was the closest I got. A family left a box of food, which obviously included a brussels sprout.
