Peanut Monster

Here’s one of our regular visitors. He comes in for his daily feed of Sunflower seed and peanuts. I believe he is probably a juvenile. Mum had a bunch of Kits this summer and I think this is one of them.

Here’s an Eastern Grey Squirrel (Sciurus carolinensis) sitting in the Empress trees in our yard. The Eastern Grey or black in this case are considered an invasive species in British Columbia. Pretty and cute but they have played havoc on the local population of Squirrels. I guess if your bigger and stronger than the local, you’re going to lay down the law!
