Okay, they’re not magic.  But they’re still pretty cool.  I thought they were a myth until I saw them myself.  Trinity Bellwoods park in Toronto has long been home to generations of albino squirrels.  There’s only a couple of them and for some reason it’s kinda exciting the first time you lay eyes on one of the white squirrels yourself,  usually because some other person has stopped in their tracks to stare at them.  They are quite famous in the ‘hood. Their images adorn t-shirts and bags, there’s even a cafe at Queen and Gore Vale named after them, White Squirrel Coffee.  I discovered this beautiful photographic series of my squirrelly neighbours by Michael Werner called The White Squirrel Way.  You can see more of his series here.
