Not sure about this one, but it is the reddest of the squirrels in the area. More of a mixed red-grey coat making me think is a melano with a red gene.

I read in Roger Caras' Mammals of North America that the Eastern Red Squirrel had not gone as far south as the central coast of CA. However, his book was written in 1967.

Anybody have an idea?

Another frequent visitor to our backyard feeder. We get both male and female and later we will see them bringing young to the feeder and teaching them how to get the seed.

black head, female has white stripes on head, black and white speckled wings, underneath part of wings is yellow, female breast is a pale orange, males has darker orange breast.

Used this image as it was taken on May 25th. Adding others from another time.

Have been seeing them for 8 years here.

Description

Was high in a tree near a pond. Drew attention to itself with a lovely tweet that I did not recognize. Even with a 400 lens, could not get a good view.

Second photo shows back side that is brown. The lower bill is definitely a yellow-orange. Forked tail makes me think it is a flycatcher.

Thanks to John D for identification
