I heard this Eastern Fox Squirrel chirping from across the road, as I was walking my dogs in the morning. It was perched in a California Pepper Tree. It scrambled down to the ground and back up into the branches several times as my dogs and I approached. It looked as if the squirrel was eating something in the grass. When we arrived at the sidewalk below, the squirrel perched on a branch and shook its tail at us until we left.
This afternoon, I saw an Eastern Fox Squirrel traveling east on the power lines in my back yard. The power lines continue three more houses before ending near some pine trees.
I saw this Eastern Fox Squirrel sitting on the power lines in my backyard. It was facing East and sat still for about 10 minutes before I stopped keeping track of it. Another 15 minutes later, it was gone.
One of a family of three, I think. They visit my small, urban backyard in Playa del Rey, in Southern CA, a short distance from LAX airport. This is the larger male. He comes by with a female occasionally. And a younger male comes by at different times. There is not much commotion, so they may be related.
Apparently attracted to bbq in yard, around 9 PM
At Fisherman's Village. Marina Del Rey
