Some of the best things in life are free. Like squirrels in the park or the back yard. The reddish-brown squirrel is an Okie. We had a family of them in our back yard in Bethany that entertained us each morning as we ate breakfast. Most Canadian squirrels are black. We enjoy the ones pictured when standing at our kitchen sink. Our neighbor keeps her "bird" feeders well stocked, a real squirrel magnet. We had a squirrel-proof bird feeder that, once conquered by our furry friends, was a favorite gathering spot for them. They are difficult to photograph, though, due to their shyness and my lack of skill.
