Yet More Defective Wildlife

We may have a new squirrel, a female? (I think) featuring a broad band of scar tissue across the muzzle, who, if she returns regularly, will get the moniker “Scarface.” I think she might be one of the ones who had botflies last year, as there’s a dark blot in one armpit. I’ve spotted her a few times, mostly thinking “Is there something on that squirrel’s face?” but having actually seen her fairly close now, I can see that it’s some sort of scar.

We’ll see if she comes back regularly enough to join the ranks of named squirrels…
