Appreciating A Black Squirrel


We're up at the cabin in Lakeshore (for the now-cancelled ice fishing extravaganza) and are enjoying watching the resident black squirrel. We've discovered she's a female. Yep, believe it or not it's mating season in the frozen northland. Eastern Gray Squirrels, which is what this black squirrel is, have their babies in late February or early March; a 44 day gestation period.

If you're a blogger and have a squirrel story, share it via Pintrest or Twitter (#squirrelday). Here are more ways to share your squirreliness.

For more information on black squirrels, here's my post from a year ago.
