Mystery SquirrelI have heard this squirrel for nearly 7 years. He sounds very un-squirrel-like. More like a bird cheeping. And very annoying too! He will sit in the tree and "cheep-cheep-cheep" for an hour at a time. I've caught sight of him (her?) off and on. He's nearly half the size of the regular brown-gray squirrel I see more commonly and rarely comes out of the trees. The whole peanuts on the deck finally enticed him down to the ground and more in my view--but I'm still at a loss what kind of squirrel. He doesn't stick around. As you can see he races to the deck, grabs a peanut, and races off again. I used the FLIP on a small tripod in the house--since he is too shy to ever get closer...and it was raining all day.
