Albino  Squirrel
in  the 'hood 
Oct 29, 2015 
 the  second  albino squirrel
that  has been  in our  yard
the first one spotted in  2009
and  moved about so quickly 
I seldom got a non blurry shot
sadly he/ she  became the  meal 
for one of  the resident hawks
genetic abberations  of  the
eastern gray  squirrel  produce 
the rare  albino squirrel
( denoted by pink eyes )
the  white morph  squirrel
not a true albino..
doesn't have  pink eyes 
and results from a 
different genetic abberation
