ID this critter in our squirrel den?
Noticed this little fellow in our one squirrel house yesterday afternoon. At first glance(About 50 feet away and fifteen feet up, through the snow) I thought it was an owl but then I thought "No, it's head is too small".
Ran in and got the camera and got two less than perfect pictures of it. Thought maybe it was a flying squirrel but the head seems too round. For perspective, the hole he's in is about 3 inches in diameter. I can't decide if he's got his whole body in the hole, perched on the bottom of it or not.
Just last week there was a squirrel in there. Earlier yesterday I thought I saw something poking above the bottom of the hole that wasn't the light brown of the squirrel but was more gray. The only time I've ever seen anything other than a squirrel in there was a couple of years ago when some cowbirds checked it out temporarily.
