    I learned later that our black squirrels are the descendants of (legal) Canadian immigrants.
    Black squirrels are all over the place here in Ontario...Mostly in urban areas though where they tend to outcompete the smaller red guys. Out in the bush though the red squirrels still dominate from what I have seen.

    Yeah, red squirrels also, despite their stature, put up a fight against the larger black squirrels. I've seen my fair share of battles between the two.

    Some of the black squirrels I have seen around here are really jet black and quite good looking. They add to the variety of squirrels we have, and are kind of cool.

    What I really think is cool is when I see a little chipmunk run across the street. That doesn't happen too often.
