Albino Gray Squirrel at Allegheny Front Hawk Watch

This albino gray squirrel was seen at Allegheny Front Hawk Watch as it came up the hill to the watch site. We hope it stays and becomes the site mascot.

The albino gray squirrel decided to get up in the oak near our picnic table at the site.

The albino gray squirrel climbed up the oak and stayed perched on limbs where it could be hidden by leaves from the many red-tailed hawks that were flying over. The eyes appeared to be dark and I thought it was a partial albino because of that. However, the eyes look dark pink in this shot and it may be a complete albino. Lighting might have been fooling me when I was directly looking at it
