plump squirrels

Are the squirrels looking well-fed where you live?  I haven't seen a slim one in months.  There is one in particular who's quite chubby.

Isn't he?

I'm concerned about what this might mean.  Do they know when it's going to be a hard winter?  I wish I hadn't noticed.


  1. I believe that they do! The ones around her are big, fat, thick haired and black! Haven't seen so many black squirels before. It is amazing.

  2. I've never seen any but gray squirrels.

  3. Lisa, They are called "fox squirrels". They are dark brown or black with white faces. I had only seen the grey squirrel which is most popular until moving to North Carolina.

  4. I'm a little frightened by the size of those squirrels!
