I never heard of a black squirrel. Never saw one in person or in a picture. While walking with Steve to view some of the apartment/condo buildings on the Gold Coast near where we live, we happened upon a bunch of black squirrels in a small region of a small neighborhood, running from yard to yard, tree to tree. It was like they were showing off for us. So of course I had to oblige and take their picture, so they could be posted on Birth Of A Seed!
