Here's an interesting squirrel story from Scottsdale, Arizona, about a claim that a squirrel had a bird in its mouth:
Besides, there are other fish to fry at the moment. I just got a note from a woman in north Scottsdale who said she had seen a squirrel with a bird in its mouth. That's weird.
Some squirrels, gray and flying squirrels, sometimes will raid a bird's nest for the eggs or the babies, but we don't have any of those around the Valley. We have rock squirrels, and they are not meat-eaters. At least they're not supposed to be. Still, I suppose anything is possible. Maybe it was a rogue, an outlaw, a rock squirrel gone bad.
Sorry, no pics. Apparently the lady didn't snap any pictures of the little squirrel.
