|Black squirrel near Michigan State University in Lansing, MI|
The first sure sign I've seen that spring is near is squirrels "dancing" with each other. If you feed the squirrels and think they are looking especially fat right now, it may be that the females are eating for three or four. You can spot the experienced momma black squirrels because they look like they are running around with only their fluffy pants on. They pluck out the top half of their body hair to line their nest.
