This 'Phantom' squirrel seems to visit for several times at the feeder and it likes to eat not too fast..

The New guest, a gray female:
She looks like or she resembles a bit Paula, but she is younger, I think.
She was interested of everything on the platform, she checked the fat balls and water pot.. At last she preferred the home made fat ball

Charley or Oscar:



These two males are very similar. So I may be wrong. It can be Oscar too. Or it may be also that I see 'wrong' in different lightning. I just think I remember that the color of the forehead of Oscar is darker or the other way round.. :mrgreen:

The 'blueish' pictures are from 23rd and the more warm colored pictures are from today the 25th October:

I tried to compare the squirrels:

Is there two different squirrels or only one and the same?? :puzzled:

I wish I could know...

'Phantom'

Is it a male or female, I'm not sure.
Please tell me is the name 'Phantom' sounds too strange.. Dark masked squirrel needs a suitable name. Perhaps we have to wait that the gender is known??

Castano:

It's interesting how different color the red squirrel fur can be.

I wonder where is Mops Jr. His fur is of the same tone, rather dark red as Castano's, but it is not as dark.
Castano is the darkest red squirrel I have ever seen.

I think Phantom sounds fine for a squirrel.

Thanks, alice. I was unsure if it is suitable. So, we have Phantom, a very handsome and cute one, around here on the hill.

It's very dark here in Finland. But it's warmer than in last Midsummer! It has been +14,2 in SW coast.

Here in Southern Finland we had +11.

Yesterday: The new (?) visitor, the gray female from top to toes.

:hi:

Thank you Olga for your lovely videos and pictures of squirrels. :bow:
Thank you also for wonderful video of autumn on Squirrel Hill. :thumbs:
I'm very happy that I can to see so many squirrels at your feeders.
It's nice when new squirrels find this little paradise in your garden. ♥♥♥
It's interesting that squirrels have various shades of grey, red and brown fur. Each of them is different.
I also saw Great Tits, Blue Tits and Coal Tit on your videos.
Your home made fat balls must be very tasty. :D
