Fox Squirrel – A High-wire Act

Fox Squirrel

A High-wire Act One bright overcast day I decided to visit a local housing tract to see if there was any “urban wildlife” activity. Sure enough, I caught this Fox Squirrel [an introduced species to our area] leaving a backyard squirrel-feeding station. This “savvy saver”, with pilfered peanut in maw, made its guileful getaway via the overhead power lines. It was quite a high-wire act. ~ Anecdote and Fox Squirrel capture, A High-wire Act © Jerry L.
