Question for Bullie. What's going on here?

Bullie, I'm seeing lots of grey squirrels this year with brown on them. Any idea what this is? Are the greys interbreeding with the Fox squirrels?

Here's one turned a little more. I'll try to get a broad side shot.

We see all sorts of variation in coloring over the course of a hunting season. Some squirrels have quite a bit of brown.

Thanks Bullie. I'll pay more attention during the coming year. My photos from 2,000 don't show the brown. That's why I was asking. Maybe the MS squirrels are moving in on us. :)

Well how about that! I went back through a lot of my old photos. I found this one that was taken in May of 2001.
