Are melanistic squirrels rare in your area? We've got a bunch of them in the Lansing (MI) area, and they were pretty common where I grew up, too. Just yesterday I was watching two squirrels chasing each other. Never did figure out why. But the chasee was the usual brown and the chaser was melanistic.
