Fox Squirrel

I found the Sherman's Fox Squirrel resting on a branch on the pine by the open meadow.

I stalked down the edge of the windrow to get a closer image but then ... he ran towards me!

Bounding like a red fox would be a good description! That's why they're called Fox Squirrels 'cause they run like a fox and often have that reddish tingle to their coat.

The fox squirrel's manner of walking, coloration that blends into the road material, and limited road crossing skills is damaging to their longevity prospects. Road kill accounts for the loss of many fox squirrels.

Try for more fox squirrels and the rest of the wildlife.
