Flying Squirrel Visits the Feeders
This nocturnal squirrel is an omnivore, which means they eat a variety of foods including seeds, nuts, fungi, fruit, and insects. They will also eat meat and eggs if available. This could either be a Northern or a Southern Flying Squirrel. Generally the Northern are north of the Mohawk River, but there is some overlap. The Southern is more grey and the Northern more brown, however it is impossible to tell what color this one is in the poor light. They only weigh around 2 ounces, making them New York's smallest squirrel.
