    • OH, wouldn’t that be fun?? I’d LOVE to see you come walking through the door of the classroom! πŸ˜€ And then, of course, I’d make you stay around for days and days so we could do some fun stuff, like go out on the river for an eco-tour! πŸ˜€ ❀ πŸ˜€


    • That’s a fox squirrel, Mae, and about double the size of the typical gray squirrel. (The color of fox squirrels can be extremely variable). We have two sub-species of them in Florida, and they are magnificent, though not seen as often as they once were, I’m afraid.

      And I hope you’re right. I love doing these, but only when I can tell the audience is enjoying them, too. Mammals, in general, are a little out of my wheelhouse (as they say) in that I’m much more familiar with birds and reptiles. But I’ve seen some wonderfully interesting mammals over the years and have been researching them in more depth for this series of talks.

      • I have no doubt you’ll give an excellent presentation. I’m unfamiliar with fox squirrels, but that photo really stood out.

        There is a pure white albino squirrel in my dentist’s neighborhood that I have been lucky to see twice now. My husband (who goes to the same dentist) still doesn’t believe me, LOL!

        • Both albino and leucistic white squirrels exist in “pocket populations.” We have them in the panhandle. Both are white, but they are not the same thing, genetically. You can tell the albinos by their pink eyes, for one thing. The leucistics have black eyes and sometimes have a few dark markings on them. Sometimes not. Tell your husband you are not having laughing gas hallucinations. πŸ˜€

          Fox squirrels are amazing. You’d love them. They lope like otters, being far too big to scurry like gray squirrels.


  1. If only there wasn’t an ocean between us! I love all wildlife (I have two squirrels, a hedgehog and various toads/frongs who call my garden ‘home’ and cost me a fortune to feed (well not the frogs and toads) not to mention myriad wild birds. I’d love to be able to go to one of these events they sound fabulous!

    • You sound like me, except for the hedgehog! πŸ™‚ We don’t have them in Florida. I love wildlife, too, and I really enjoy sharing some of the special things that live in Florida with others. Maybe someday you’ll get here, who knows? That would be great, and stranger things have happened! πŸ˜€

  2. whoops, I meant frogs not frongs – what’s a frong?) The birds eat me out of house and home and I also have a horse and a ‘rescue’ dog, and ‘ferel’ cat to do the mousework down at the stables, so I’m a bit of a hopeless case!

    • Frongs? Frogs that like songs? Cousins to those things that grow on ferns? I give up. πŸ˜€ Yes, I fully understand the expense of bird food, so I dole it out sparingly. Besides, I don’t want it to be the only thing they eat all day. That wouldn’t be good for them OR my pocketbook! πŸ˜€ Saturday, I’ll be talking to local folks about our most commonly seen backyard birds. Wish you could come. (They wouldn’t likely be common to you at all! πŸ˜€ )

  3. The starlings and pidgeon sare on the feeders like vultures as soon as I fill them and I have to keep them filled so the little birds get a chance! Yes, I think a lot of your birds would be unusual to see over here – I would love to be able to see have hummingbirds in my garden!
