Red Squirrel surprise!
Ruby as Linda calls it, or Rusty as I call it (assuming it is one and the same critter) made an appearance today. That's not altogether unusual. It has been around the past few weeks. Today, however, it (we are not sure if it is a he or a she) looked a bit odd. It's fur is kind of punked out up top. Might be the damp but more likely shedding the winter coat.
