Apparently its the Winter fell/coat. They'll be gone after the next moult.--8<--Snipp!--8<--So whats with the ear tufts? Ours have them too now. Mating plumage?
Great shot of a red squirrel,
Nice to see some shots of squirrels where they are not being torn apart by some bird.
It was a bad month for squirrels on CR in March
Thanks Sporgon! I tend to shoot live birds and animals. Prefer to have them alive before, during and after my photo sessions.
Yeah Brian, I noticed those tufts too, and can't remember seeing such big ones before on any Red squirrel. I'm just guessing, but it could perhaps be a leftover from the rather long and cold, icy, winter we've had here.
