Eastern Gray Squirrel
They seem to be everywhere! At my bird feeders that I put out a few years ago I started with only one squirrel, then after a year I noticed I had 2, well needless to say, now I am up to 4! They are eating at the feeders more than the birds!!! They sell feeders with squirrel guards on them, some keep the squirrels from climbing up to the feeders, others throw the squirrel off due to their weight… I haven’t switched over to these feeders yet, but I think that it is probably time! It is considered an invasive species in Britain and has spread across the country and displace their native red squirrel. Remember that if you start feeding one squirrel it won’t be long before you find yourself feeding more!
