Male Cardinal and Black Squirrel Feeding


It’s unusual to get just one Male Cardinal and a Black Squirrel at the feeder without other birds and squirrels feeding at the same time.  The Black Squirrel had not been around for a couple weeks.  This particular Male Cardinal is always at the feeder.  The squirrel is so dark he can appear as a shadow much of the time – when the sun isn’t directly on him.

The Black Squirrel – What a Rascal


I hesitated to post this image.  As you can see it is not very good. But, everything around it is in focus.  He was standing still when I started the shot with my Canon PowerShot A590IS but he moved as I pushed down the shutter button.  The one good thing that came from this was the fact his back legs are up and under him.

Squirrel Picnic – Everyone’s Welcome


This little gathering is not unusual at our feeders.  The Black Squirrel gets along well with the other Grey Squirrels. Sometimes the Black one can look like a blur.

Black Squirrel Resting


I shot this image of our neighborhood Black Squirrel without completely zooming in to show how much a Black Squirrel can look like a shadowy Grey or Brown Squirrel.  This little fella/gal has not been around for a few days but that not is not issue – he or she may show up today or tomorrow or be absent for weeks and then return.

Black and Gray Squirrel Feeding

This Gray Squirrel showed up at our backyard feeder for the first time, ever, 1/22/2015.  We had never seen a Black Squirrel in Peoria but once, in the summer of 2014.
