Question Do Silver gray squirrels cross breed???

I have a squirrel at my bird feeder that is the size of a silver gray but has the reddish color of the Douglas squirrel on shi belly cheeks and tail.

I wonder if they cross breed????

Perhaps it's a Fox Squirrel?

Who're you calling "Bill?"

(No, don't think SGs hybridize...they're being pushed out everywhere by the eastern fox)

We have two invasive species, the Fox Squirrel and the Eastern Gray and these do interbreed. I have seen what appear to be Eastern Gray with extremely white bellies but no idea if they are hybrids as they are small otherwise and do not resemble the Western Gray in any way.

He's calling me Bill....On IFish I'm a PIR8 Hook but on other hunting forums I'm "Karamojo Bill".
