• There is a pair of nesting Red Cardinals living right outside our window this year. It's cute how the sparrows feed side by side with them. A hybrid squirrel has appeared in our yard. It's not too surprising because every year the baby gray squirrels play and romp with the baby red squirrels until the red ones get too strong and demonic (which is their nature). Anyway, I spotted a gray squirrel chasing around with another gray squirrel... with a RED tail. It's a first for my eyes. I've never heard of it and haven't found anything online. Let me know if you've seen or heard of this. There are black squirrels with white tails near the North Rim of the Grand Canyon... beautiful.
