People in the Park and a Special Treat – A White Squirrel

I had today’s post planned out in my head when I did my last entry on Saturday here, which told about the dogs that enjoy our local park, Trinity Bellwoods. While I had taken the pictures of those dogs I also got some of people there and those are what I had planned to post today.

But those plans changed after I spotted a very rare and special resident of this particular park, a white squirrel, on Sunday morning.

A small dray (I didn’t know before but I know now, that this is what a family of squirrels is called) of these white ones has lived here for a long time, but in all the years I have regularly been coming here, always on the lookout for a sighting, I have only ever spotted one twice before. And those times were quite fleeting, though I did manage to get some pictures last time which was actually on Christmas day (discussed here). I’ll retell my joke from that post … the Christmas Day sighting of the elusive white squirrel brought a whole new meaning to the lyric ‘I’m dreaming of a white Christmas’. :)

And here are the other park pictures that I have for you, but now they kind of pale in comparison. Especially this little guy enjoying a peanut. I thought he was very special when I photographed him a few days ago, but now maybe not so much.

Thanks very much for taking a look. Wishing you a great Monday and a good week to come.

    He’s (she’s??!) gorgeous! I know some people don’t like squirrels, but I always remember Alison Uttley’s stories and I think they’re super-cute. Not quite so cute when you have a family of them living in your loft, though, or stealing your bird food!

  4. What a beautiful squirrel! Thanks for sharing the pics. Very intriguing. Looks like a lovely park too.
