Just call me Scarface.
Every chance I get, I visit the white leucistic squirrels at Charles River Park. There are 4 of them and each one is lightning fast. All little critter need to be quick to elude hawks and falcon in the area. But especially the white ones as their light color against the dark leaf litter acts as a beacon for predators on the wing. And even the normally colored gray squirrels seem to see the white ones as favorite targets. But one of the whities isn’t intimidated. He’s often the aggressor chasing away his gray cousins. If little guys can be fearless, he’s a tough guy and has the scars on his cute little pink nose to prove it.
