    It's been a while, a rough couple months, but was able to take a few snaps.

    Very nice series Brent. It took me a few seconds to notice the female cardinal in the last shot.

    Love that black squirrel, very striking in snow. They remind me of Ohio, I didn't know they had some elsewhere (going by your profile!). Neat.

    Thank you. Ontario has one of the biggest population of black squirrels in North America. Just as many of them as Grey Squirrels. Population in the northern States are attributed from back squirrels coming from Canada.

    All I knew about the ones in Kent was that you weren't allowed to hunt them, they were protected. I think they knew it too... they were more aggressive than your everyday brown tree rat. :) There were also a few white ones there as well.
    Interesting that they are Canadian.

    Was up at your end this afternoon to look for snowys and buntings. No luck except a group of buntings that landing either side of the road. Couldn't get close enough for any shots.
