Lunch Guest

We had a guest for lunch today. Just as Terry and I sat down for our noonday meal, a black squirrel appeared on the deck. It's not the first of its kind at the Aerie. We had one show up in the winters of '06-'07 and '07-'08, but this is the first we've seen since then.

Add it to the rather odd, nearly all white striped skunk we saw on our way to the Audubon meeting last night.

Nice lookin' little critter.
Is squirrel stew in the offing?

If it were on the menu, Paul, this guy would get a pass. Survival in the wild is tough enough when you're diferent and there are more than a few of his gray cousins around.

He is so pretty! Don't know that I have ever seen one.
