This that is glorious in his apparel, traveling in the greatness of his strength...Wherefore art thou red in thine apparel?...Isaiah 63: 1-2


We very seldom see red squirrels on our feeder and this little guy came around 6:30 tonight..They are tinier than the gray squirrels who we do see frequently on our bird feeder. It seemed kind of nice to see a squirrel of a different species for a change of pace.

I think they are rather handsome in their coloring....Blue eyes are a striking contrast with their red fur coat.

    Looks at those eyes!!! As if he were caught RED-handed! You really caught him up close and personal. I see as many as 6 squirrels at a time in my front yard.

    This is a very interesting squirrel. I have never seen a red one like this. The blue eyes are a contrast to the red fur!
