black squirrel sighting


whenever my best friend from childhood comes to new york she always makes time to go for long walks with me. yesterday, while taking our walk together at the massapequa nature preserve, she noticed this black squirrel and quickly captured the above image using her iphone. I have never seen a black squirrel on long island before so needless to say I was pretty impressed - with both my bff's observation skills as well as her quick use of her iphone camera. I scrambled to get the shot below but I like the close up one better since you can actually see that yes, this is indeed a squirrel.

Thanks for the photo credit. ;)
Your photo was much clearer, though!

Can imagine that the sighting of the black squirrel made your day! (I've never seen a black one!)

Pretty sure I've never seen a black squirrel on LI. There was one of the usual sort at my mom's house that practically became a pet. Named it Oscar—but it turned out to be Oscarina. :~}
