The Squirrel Restaurants

Albino Squirrel and Friends

We went for a walk up on Mount Royal. The squirrels were feasting at the Squirrel Restaurants - areas under the bird feeders. While above, chickadees and nuthatches flitted back and forth from nearby trees to the feeder, underneath the squirrels gathered in numbers. I had not seen an albino squirrel before.

Underneath the Feeder

There were a number of these "restaurants", each with a very satisfied clientele.


  1. Hi,Susan
    You captured them well in the snow.

  2. I've never seen an albino squirrel either! We've seen 2 pine martens on our property. They keep the squirrel population down - thankfully!
