Small Gray Squirrel

Sciurus carolinensis
I've stopped putting out seed for the birds and squirrels now because we had an incident in the past in which a bear came by on a spring night and destroyed the bird feeders. But about five weeks ago I used up the last of the seed, and this little fellow got his share. Don't worry, Charlie — feeding will resume in the winter after the bears retire in their dens.

  1. Ha! We have had bears go through our campsite in Shenandoah but that's about it. I'm not sure what I would do with one in my yard!!

  2. It's fairly rare to see them, but I've talked to a couple of people who saw bears on their decks! They were after bird food or dog food.
