Looks like a rat. Any other images showing the tail?

Yep, looks like a rat to me too.

Hmm I thought it looked pretty small, hard to tell though. I guess a rat's more likely to climb a tree than a mouse too eh?

Thank you all!

LOL...Alberta is rat free.

First I thought it was a Jung flying squirrel until my wife convinced me
today that it was a mouse....do you agree?
I put peanut out for the birds but this was a surprise and this flying
squirrel too.

Color is about the same

Color is the same but the nose shape isn't. If you look at the squirrel the nose slopes down from the forehead. The mouse or vole's--I think it's too small to be a rat-- goes down from the top of it's head

I used to have lots of flying squirrels but now I have a pair of owls that nest somehwere and I think they got rid of all of them. Too bad as I used to watch them eat seeds on the window sill while I was on the computer right beside it.

Oh..how nice!

I got the news from a other site, it's a Southern Redbacked Vole
