I have a few by my house. They seem a bit more cautious than the grays and blacks because of how much they stand out (unless it’s winter). We have around four on our property, but we only see them about twice a year, near the house that is. They’re super cool! We have a ton of red, black, gray, and mixed squirrels.

I had no idea there were solid white squirrels. Once in my long life I did see a solid black one. From time to time I see a red one. We do have our share of gray. Maybe we have so many gray's they keep the others away.

I believe so. They’re not albino as they have black eyes and paws.

There has been a large population of black squirrels in our town, but I don't believe there are any white ones around here.

The closest city to me is full of black squirrels. See blacks/greys in the cities and reds in more rural areas around here.

This one was with greys. Seen in a public area and did not seemed the least bit bothered by people or their dogs.

I am thoroughly entertained by squirrels. I used to love watching them yell at my cat,, and her being her, would sit down and meow right back at them!

I rescued a baby squirrel from her few years back, poor thing fell out of the maple tree. So i put it back and its mama came and got it. That li'l guy is pretty friendly towards me to this day.

Used to work with a lady who handfed squirrels. Apparently they like steak n shake biscuits.

My aunt used to have a squirrel that would come up to her window for peanuts when i was like 4 or 5. I thought it was the coolest thing ever back then!

At my hometown, we have tons and tons of red/grey squirrels. There’s a group of three that lives in my yard until a hurricane came two months ago and knocked all of the trees down (yes all... there were like 50). The squirrels at my college campus are not afraid of humans at all. You could be within 3-4 feet of one and it would not even flinch!! I’ve got a few cool videos of them

that being said, never seen black or white squirrels before!! That’s so cool!!

"Only reds" is pretty common as reds are very aggressive and tend to drive away other squirrels.
Here we used to be all grays but now blacks have moved in and we are mostly black. I'm not sure if "Project fat squirrel" was partially responsible for the disappearance of most of the grays.
At our old place there were 7-10 white squirrels on our street and my little brothers place his block was all white squirrels.
