The invasion has begun

The invasion has begun, our mighty foot soldiers have infiltrated the capital of the U.S. and A, inventors of democracy. Prepare to be cowed! Or squirrelled.

Whatever the reason, observers say, black squirrels have been showing up in areas where only gray-colored specimens had been.
They appeared in Bethesda, Silver Spring and Chevy Chase in the 1960s, perhaps using the Rock Creek Stream Valley as a highway north from the District. One survey of Bethesda in 1990 found that about 25 percent of the squirrels there were black.
