For years I have had grey and black squirrels visiting my yard and deck. This is the first time I have seen this little guy. He is a beautiful brown with a yellow blond tail. I can’t tell for sure but his eyes seem to have a red hue to them. Is he a mutant?

(Note: There is a lot of colour variation in Gray Squirrels, which results in white, brown, black, grey, and silvery-grey colour phases. The black phase is most common in Peterborough. D.M.)
