Got a few shots of this gray squirrel with a lot of brown in it. I live near the Cincinnati area. The last shot shows it eating a bud off a tree. Now I know what they eat in the spring. It moved just out of focus right before I took the shot though. They're quick.

I was told they were a variant of the fox squirrel.

That's probably a gray squirrel actually. A lot of them turn either black or white when they live in cities because they don't stand out for predators there since there aren't a lot of predators in cities. So they have greater numbers of mutations surviving. A white squirrel or even a black squirrel will get killed more quickly in the wild. But of course there are some that live in wild areas too. There's a pretty good shot of a black gray squirrel on this page:

Fox squirrels look different like this one:

I've never seen a spotted squirrel before. They seem to have a limitless number of color patterns. My brown squirrel is really a gray squirrel by name.

It's a California ground squirrel. They got holes everywhere around here. :mad:

Here is a good picture of one.

I see the body shape now and that much resembles the ground squirrels in my area but the colors are nothing like the ones here. Apparently they are actually chipmunks here but I think those are part of the ground squirrel family. I didn't check the scientific classification much. I just know that we have the chipmunks on this Wikipedia page in my area.
